Local Histórico
“Glastonbury Abbey was a monastery in Glastonbury, Somerset, England. Its ruins, a grade I listed building and scheduled ancient monument, are open as a visitor attraction. Lovely walks and interesting guide talks telling the history of The abbey, founded in the 7th century and enlarged in the 10th. It was destroyed by a major fire in 1184, but subsequently rebuilt and by the 14th century was one of the richest and most powerful monasteries in England. The abbey controlled large tracts of the surrounding land and was instrumental in major drainage projects on the Somerset Levels. The abbey was suppressed during the Dissolution of the Monasteries under King Henry VIII of England. The last abbot, Richard Whiting (Whyting), was hanged, drawn and quartered as a traitor on Glastonbury Tor in 1539. From at least the 12th century the Glastonbury area has been associated with the legend of King Arthur, a connection promoted by medieval monks who asserted that Glastonbury was Avalon. Christian legends have claimed that the abbey was founded by Joseph of Arimathea in the 1st century.”

“This ended up really interesting, as we wondered what history of note there was in Taunton, but as it turned out, this is really well put together. Located in the 12th century great hall of Taunton Castle (part of the Castle Hotel), it goes way back into Prehistoric times, covering 400 million years of history, showing the swamps and the life that existed then and how it shaped "the levels". Lots of fossils, mostly complete and sizable too. See the exhibits on the rebellious county during the 17th century and what it endured in the Civil War and Monmouth Rebellion.”

“Tours of the cider farm , the coffee shop and the newly setup deli bar make this well worth a visit. We often stock up on the delicacies from the deli bar - little bit pricey but excellent quality and mostly locally sourced.”
