Part of the Through Time Series


Glastonbury Through Time by Steve Wallis

Glastonbury is one of Somerset's, if not Britain's, most attractive historical towns. The many ancient buildings are set in a stunning landscape, which together with historic and legendary connections to figures such as King Arthur and Joseph of Arimathea, have attracted visitors for centuries. The old views mostly date from the first half of the twentieth century, while the modern images were taken by the author. The photographs are laid out as an absorbing tour of Glastonbury. This first works its way around the town centre. Next there is a look around the abbey, which despite seeming to be a timeless ruin has in fact changed considerably over the past century. Then, the tour heads out to some of the curiosities in the outskirts before finishing off with an outing around Glastonbury's most recognisable feature, the Tor.
