What you'll do

Stand next to the Holy Thorn Tree which grew from the staff given to Joseph of Arimathea, by Jesus himself.

Then be guided, via the hidden chapel of St Margret, to the site of the Wattle Church in the centre of the Glastonbury Abbey. The Wattle Church is England’s first ever building for Christian worship, built by Mary Magdalene and Joseph of Arimathea in 62AD. A few steps away we find the last resting place of King Arthur and Gwynevere and find out why it is there and how they are linked to the family of Christ. The windows within St Johns church perfectly paint a picture of the hidden stories of old.

Tor has a very deep local understanding and knowledge and points out sites that you won’t or won’t easily find in books. It’s the community view from someone that really enjoys his research and continued learning.
