Glastonbury is the oldest Marian Shrine north of the Alps. It is a place of myth, mystique, legend, tradition and faith, which, for many reasons, has a high profile in Britain and abroad and to where many head, seeking truth. Arguably, after Walsingham, it is the second most prominent Marian shrine in England and Wales.
This handy booklet provides the perfect companion for pilgrims and seekers whether heading for Glastonbury, or just curious about his intriguing place. It gives a thorough account of the ‘Glastonbury story’ from earliest days, along with its great Abbey, the current Shrine, the landmark Tor, and other places of interest. Accompanying these is the narrative for each place, and at the heart of the booklet are suitable prayers and meditations.
