Glastonbury, Somerset. Went here as a little girl, have the charm on a bracelet to prove it :)

Ruins of Glastonbury Abbey - Somerset, England. In during the year of the reign of Henry VIII, there were over 800 monasteries, nunneries and friaries in Britain. By there were none. Glastonbury Abbey was but one such casualty.

Several miles north of Glastonbury is a spot on the Mendip hills known as Deerleap. It is well known by local artists because of the far reaching views it provides over the Somerset Levels and of Glastonbury Tor nestled in amongst the hills. On misty mornings it is the perfect spot to appreciate just how flat the landscape is and how it would’ve looked thousands of years ago when the area was under water. On mornings like this it becomes an island once again.
