PHOTOS (GLASTONBURY)
GENERAL  |  GRADUATION  |  ITALY  |  BATH SPA  |  LONDON  |  GLASTONBURY

I used to travel around the City of Bath (i.e. Bath & North-East Somerset, a.k.a. B&NES) when I was on my study stay in England. I visited many places, however, most of all I liked the village Wells with one of the oldest and biggest cathedrals in England. Last but not least, I also liked mystical abbey Glastonbury. Therefore, you can find a couple of pictures from these two places.
GeorgeP and John in Wells

There is the Wells Cathedral displayed in these two figures. It was taken abeam in the left-hand one, and it's frontal view is shown in the right-hand picture. Next two huge and beautiful cathedrals I saw in England were the Salisbury Cathedral and the Westminster Cathedral in London.


GeorgeP in Glastonbury -- Arthur

Mystical Glastonbury is usually connected with myths about the Knights of the Round Table, the Camelot, the Land of Avalon, and the King Arthur. I am in front of the ruins of the Glastonbury Abbey in the left-hand picture. The right-hand picture shows me in front of the plaque to mark the site of the King Arthur's tomb which is situated in the middle of the Glastonbury Abbey. It reads as follows:

“SITE OF KING ARTHUR'S TOMB. IN THE YEAR 1191 THE BODIES OF KING ARTHUR AND HIS QUEEN WERE SAID TO HAVE BEEN FOUND ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE LADY CHAPEL. ON 19TH APRIL 1278 THEIR REMAINS WERE REMOVED IN THE PRESENCE OF KING EDWARD I AND QUEEN ELEANOR TO A BLACK MARBLE TOMB ON THIS SITE. THIS TOMB SURVIVED UNTIL THE DISSOLUTION OF THE ABBEY IN 1539.”


GeorgeP in Glastonbury -- The Tor

These two pictures were taken not far from Glastonbury near the hill with a small tower on top of it and known as the Tor (or also Glastonbury Tor). The left-hand photo shows a view of the Tor from the bottom of the hill and the right-hand picture then a view from the top of the hill into true and genuine English countryside. The village of Glastonbury is not displayed on the picture; however, it is lies to the left of the picture's view. The Glastonbury Tor is then behind the photographer.

Other pictures taken in Glastonbury and its surroundings (e.g. the Holy Thorn on Wearyall Hill) can be found at the following site: http://picasaweb.google.com/jiri.patera.
