Another Friday, Another Trip

Last Friday Christine and I went to Glastonbury ... 55 1/2 miles each way.  The great news is that almost 4 years ago, coming back from Nicks, we came via Glastonbury (as normal), but I had to stop to take Codeine, and to walk round the car .... a few times.  That was my last trip as the CFS set in.  Going though Glastonbury on a regular basis I had always wanted to visit.  It turned out that Christine had never been either, so great to explore together.

The town has a huge history to explore.  It is believed to be the last resting place of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere, the first Church is believed to be set up by Joseph of Arimathea and his disciples.  The area was first settled in the Bronze Age.

To begin with we wandered around the town, saw the Church, saw some of the many shops, as well as some 11th Century Alms Houses and a medieval merchant's house,

So thought I would share some photos
