Rather English - Climb Glastonbury Tor

Rising above the town like a pyramid, and topped off by a mysterious church tower, it is not hard to see why Glastonbury Tor so easily captures the imagination. Offering spectacular views, the Tor is thought to be the peak of the ancient Isle of Avalon, and was once literally an island, rising from the marshy Somerset levels.

Legend has it that the island was visited by King Arthur, Saint Patrick and even Jesus Christ's tin-trading uncle Joseph of Arimathea. The monks at Glastonbury Abbey even questioned whether a young Jesus himself visited, in a story immortalised in the hymn, Jerusalem.
