Wat je gaat doen

A guided walk around the Glastonbury countryside, meeting prominent trees and sacred sites along the way. We will learn how to identify the trees and about their associations in folklore. The walk lasts between 2-3 hours over 2km at a slow pace with lots of stops. This is an excellent opportunity to explore the Avalon countryside while learning about the trees and local areas of interest. We visit some of the hidden gems of this paradise and view Glastonbury Tor from many different angles. We meet the famous ancient Oaks, Gog and Magog. Later we rest for a while to eat and enjoy a private performance of folk songs by your host and local bard Matt. Tree Identification Matt offers practical lessons in tree identification. We'll learn the distinguishing features of common native trees and aim to provide knowledge that you can take home and apply on your own. Bardic Tradition Matt is a local Bard (poet or musician), a resident of the area who relates to the landscape and community from a creative perspective. He writes music and poetry inspired by and dedicated to the landscape and works these creative elements into the walk for your enjoyment. Glastonbury Tor Our route takes us around Glastonbury Tor which peers over us as we walk with the trees. We can watch it appear to change form as we progress around the Avalon countryside.

Matthew

I have been a resident of Glastonbury for 7 years and have a keen interest and knowledge of the surrounding countryside, in particular, the trees and tree identification, folklore and local traditions. I hold regular public walks throughout the year, that attract good groups of people. I am also a local Bard and I write songs and poetry dedicated to the landscape and trees, I work this creative element into the walk too. Here are some positive comments received from guests of my walks: "That was so lovely today, you're a really lovely tour guide. It felt so easy going and natural. With lots of nice stories and facts about the trees. Thank you." Kat "Thanks Matt was a really good walk and such a lovely group just what I needed" - Kate "Wonderful walk with Matt Witt, trees, songs, natures beauty, what more could you want?" - Michael
