The soggy landscape rolls by the windows. I’ve never been in Britain before, but I know seeing a popular tourist destination like Glastonbury deserted in June is odd. The few people about look half-drowned and in despair. THE MIDSUMMER WIFE

Several miles north of Glastonbury is a spot on the Mendip hills known as Deerleap. It is well known by local artists because of the far reaching views it provides over the Somerset Levels and of Glastonbury Tor nestled in amongst the hills. On misty mornings it is the perfect spot to appreciate just how flat the landscape is and how it would’ve looked thousands of years ago when the area was under water. On mornings like this it becomes an island once again.

Marked burial place of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere at Glastonbury Abbey ruins, Glastonbury, Somerset, England. Around 1190, Avalon became associated with Glastonbury, when monks at the Glastonbury Abbey claimed to have discovered the bones of Arthur and his Queen.
