This part of Somerset is steeped in myth and legend. When Alfred the Great was defending his people from Vikings he hid on the Levels and allegedly burned some cakes! Glastonbury is associated with King Arthur’s stories and to see its Tor rising from the mists is to understand why. Joseph of Arimathea is said to have visited Glastonbury and where he put his staff in the ground it grew into a thorn tree.

They offer a rare glimpse into our earliest attempts at managing the land. From the various ‘mumps’ and ‘knolls’ - these were islands in the days when this area was under water for many months of the year - there are extraordinary views. Much of the scenery is grassland, criss-crossed by ditches (or rhynes as we call them) and lined by our famous willows. The Moors were worked for peat and this is where you’ll find the world’s oldest known track way which our ancestors used to navigate the swamps. Today the roads lead to charming towns, villages, cafes and craft shops. 5
