Wearyall Hill and the Holy Thorn

Wearyall Hill has shape like a fish, and sticking out of the waters of the levels, it might have resembled a salmon coming up for feeding of the hazels to the ancients. There are said to be remains of an ancient wharf on its slopes.

This long hill is most famous for its Holy Thorn, though sadly the original was cut down by a farmer, annoyed with all the people walking onto his land. When Joseph of Arimataea with his disciples came across to Avalon, he came first to Wearyall Hill, where he planted his staff in the ground, and it sprang leaves and flowers. The descendants of this tree, a species normally found in the Middle East, still flowers throughout Glastonbury every Christmas and Easter.
