A short walk to a well known landmark - Glastonbury Tor. The conical hill, with its distinctive tower on the summit, is a landmark seen from many miles around. This route takes the well-trodden route from the town to the top, then ambles back through the countryside.
Glastonbury Tor is an important place for many people, and rich in the legends of Avalon. Its legends are well documented elsewhere online; try http://glastonburytor.org.uk/makermyths.html">http://glastonburytor.org.uk/makermyths.html for a good overview. Even if you aren't bothered by all that, the views from the top make this one of Somerset's best walks.Start: Glastonbury, OS Grid: ST499389 Elevation Profile (x: waypoint number, y: metres) Start: Glastonbury, OS Grid: ST499389 Elevation Profile (x: waypoint number, y: metres)
