Y7 History Trip to Glastonbury Abbey and The Tor

The students were shown around the Abbey ground by a "Pilgrim" from France.  She told the story of the "Glastonbury Thorn" and explained many other interesting stories and legends from the History of the Abbey.

"Alice" worked in The Abbots kitchen, and gave the students a good idea of how it would have been to have lived in the time of Henry VIII.

Later the students walked up to the top of Glastonbury Tor led by Mr. Harrison, who also told about the many myths and legends surrounding the ancient monument. The views were amazing in spite of the misty conditions.
