Glastonbury Tor. One school of thought believe this is where Arthur stabbed his sword into the ground and challenged his men to take it from him.  I know from my own walks on the hill that I have met half a dozen people who believed that they where the Second Coming.  They can't be all right . . . can they?  What magic whirls around this place?

To me this image captures the magic and stories of king arthur and Avalon as well as the reality of the place adequately mixing magic and knowledge.

Glastonbury Tor in south west England is a magical and beautiful place.  Myths and legends surround it...some say it is the entrance to the fabled Isle of Avalon, and that it is tied closely with the legends of King Arthur and the Holy Grail.  Even if none of that holds any interest for you, the Tor and the nearby Chalice Well and garden (said to be the final resting place of the Holy Grail) are incredibly beautiful and well worth a visit!
