Anyway, I continue with my trip to Glastonbury.
We went to the Abbey. Like many Abbeys in England it was destroyed by Henry VIII. The building remains are beautiful, as are the couple of the smaller buildings that are still fairly undamaged. We managed to miss the rain, and enjoyed the walk. Plenty of excuses to dig out the camera!
In the museum, visitor centre there was a model of what the building would have probably looked like
This was in the undercroft behind the area of the alter
This was a model of a 11th century Abbot, who was also Archbishop of Canterbury
