Glastonbury Tor, Pilton
It’s been called a faeries’ glass hill, a Grail castle, a centre for goddess fertility rituals and a converging point for UFOs, but for eHarmony couple Sarah and Kevin, Glastonbury Tor is a great location for a first date.
“We picked Glastonbury Tor as we both like being outdoors and Kevin could bring his dog Sammy along. It’s also quite easy to chat and to peep at someone when you are walking along next to them – a really low pressure way to start out,” says Sarah. And maybe the Tor’s supposed magical properties worked on the pair too – “We ended up having coffee, a long lunch and then meeting up again the next night.”
In the middle of the Summerland Meadows, the Tor is topped by the roofless St Michael’s Tower, a ruined church from the 14th century. But the Tor itself goes much further back, formed of rocks dating back to the early Jurassic Period. And looking out over the Somerset Levels, Dorset, Wiltshire and Wales, we can imagine even dinosaurs may have have enjoyed the views too.
There’s much more to Glastonbury than music festivals and mud. In fact, it’s a beautiful countryside town steeped in myths, legends and romance, and well worth a visit. It’s cared for by the National Trust, and you can find out all the information you need on their website – www.nationaltrust.org.uk/glastonbury-tor.
