We visited Glastonbury for our 40th wedding anniversary weekend and loved the old Abbey ruins. So a few pictures here which I hope you'll enjoy. I have added some basic info with each upload, including what's on the sign in V5 which may not be easy to read.

Haven't been around on the site just lately and thought it was high time I made a bit more effort Wink. I'm off to a new camera club tonight, so will do my best to catch up with you all tomorrow.

I remember visiting Glastonbury on a coach outing whilst on holiday a few years ago in Weston-Super-Mare, but didn't get time to go around the Abbey, so it's nice to see this wonderful set, Theresa Smile
Congratulations on your wedding anniversary, and hope you enjoyed your new camera club Wink

Theresa, this is an incredibly stunning series - each one amazing detail and so well-composed. What a noble ruin - beautiful and sad also in seeing it like this. Beautiful photos!

Thanks Christina - yes, it is so sad, I'm glad to see you picked up on that. I actually felt very angry walking round, thinking what a damn criminal Henry VIII was to order the destruction of so many wonderful old buildings - the destruction of our heritage! This was already an historic building when he had it ripped apart to satisfy his arrogance, grrrrr Sad.
