Time & Location
About the Event
Photography, Hilly Walk, Something New to Experience
6 miles/ 13 kilometres with 1 steep hill Glastonbury is steeped in legends and mysticism that weave themselves through much of what you will see and experience at Glastonbury. TWO stories stand out as the most enchanting, and they are: Joseph of Arimathea and the Holy Grail The stories will be explained to you as we walk and see the sights. We will hike up Glastonbury Tor for amazing views, visit Glastonbury Abbey and other cool places.
Thousands of years ago, an ancient civilization raised a circle of huge, roughly rectangular stones in a field in what is now Wiltshire, England. Stonehenge, as it would come to be called, has been a mystery ever since.
Building began on the site around 3100 B.C. and continued in phases up until about 1600 B.C. The people who constructed the site left no written records and few clues as to why they bothered to schlep the stones to this spot.
Wild theories about Stonehenge have persisted since the Middle Ages, with 12th-century myths crediting the wizard Merlin with constructing the site. More recently, UFO believers have spun theories about ancient aliens and spacecraft landing pads.
