    6 Quirky Facts About Glastonbury & Street

    1. King Arthur
      The area has strong links to the legend of King Arthur. Originally Glastonbury was called, Glastonbury Lake Village and many have pointed to this lake as being the home of the famous Lady of the Lake. Some legends suggest Glastonbury Tor was the home of Merlin the Magician and the town is also the supposed burial site of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere. However, a study by Reading university dispelled the myths saying the stories were most likely created by monks in 1184 to attract travellers (and their money) when the abbey started to fall on hard times.
    2. King Edmund
      Glastonbury was the site of the coronation of Edmund Ironside in 1016. At the time Glastonbury Abbey was the most important abbey in Britain.
    3. Joseph & The Holy Grail
      The area has been claimed in mythology by both Christians and Pagans. Joseph of Arimathea (father of Jesus) is said to have visited the site and brought the Holy Grail, the tale says he planted his staff in the ground and it was surrounded by the Glastonbury Thorn, a bush that continued to grow until it was cut down during the English Civil War. His son Josephus then took over the protection of the grail. Other stories tell of Joseph bringing Jesus to Glastonbury as a child and also how St Patrick stood on the tor and battled the King of the Fairies.
    4. Druids
      The tor is regularly visited by druids. In Pagan mythology the tor was the site of a palace made of glass that received the souls of the dead. It is certainly likely that the abbey was deliberately built as a means to overshadow local paganism, although the area is still hugely significant to paganism and is believed to have been the birthplace of ‘new age’ religions and beliefs.
    5. Shoes
      Street (perhaps somewhat fittingly) was the birthplace of Clark Shoes. Originally run by a family of Quakers, C&J Clark (that still have their headquarters in the town), the company began by making woollen slippers and in keeping with their philosophy profits were put back into welfare of the staff. They went on to produce boots and shoes and some of their first factories were later turned into the UK’s first outlet shopping village. Today the town is home to a shoe museum.
    6. Rarities
      Blue lias rock is a particular stone only found in the South West that has been mined in the area for centuries. There are also rare grasshoppers, butterflies and flowers which can only be found in the area around Glastonbury and Street.
    7. Festival
      Glastonbury is most famous for the UK’s largest music festival which started as a relatively small gig on a local farm. Today the festival welcomes over 200,000 visitors, covers a site of 1,100 acres (that’s bigger than Disneyland Paris!), with 8 miles of fence. The iconic Pyramid Stage has played host to acts like Oasis, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Ed Sheeran, Adele, Dolly Parton, Stevie Wonder, Kenny Rogers, Stormzy and more.
