GLASTONBURY ABBEY
Magdalene Street, Glastonbury BA6 9EL Tel. 01458 834906

Description
This abbey has so much history and so many legends it is difficult to know where to begin. It was said to have been founded by Joseph of Arimathea and was the first church in Britain (although the legends go further back than that) and that Joseph stuck his staff into the ground and a Holy Thorn (still on view) flowered there. That King Arthur is buried there. That Saint Patrick is buried there...
