EDITORS COMMENTS
Immerse yourself in the mystical beauty of Glastonbury Tor and its surrounding countryside, as captured in this breathtaking aerial photograph by Damian Grady for Historic England. The iconic tor, a distinctive hill in the English county of Somerset, rises majestically from the lush, green landscape, its ancient stones shrouded in an air of mystery and intrigue. Reputed to be the Isle of Avalon, a place of legend and mythology, Glastonbury Tor has long been a source of fascination for historians, archaeologists, and visitors alike. The tor's association with King Arthur and the legendary Avalon of Arthurian legend adds an extra layer of enchantment to its already captivating allure. The rolling hills and verdant fields that surround the tor stretch out in every direction, a patchwork quilt of green and gold that changes with the seasons. The River Brue meanders through the landscape, adding a sense of tranquility and calm to the scene. As you gaze upon this photograph, take a moment to imagine the rich history that lies beneath your feet. The tor is believed to have been a place of worship since prehistoric times, with evidence of human activity dating back to the Neolithic period. The ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, a former Benedictine monastery, can also be seen in the distance, a testament to the area's long and storied past. Whether you're a history buff, a nature lover, or simply someone in search of a little magic, this aerial view of Glastonbury Tor and its surrounding countryside is sure to leave you feeling inspired and enchanted. Let the beauty of this enchanting landscape transport you to another world, where legend and history come together in perfect harmony.
