Holy Thorn, update 5

Visited Glastonbury on 12 December 2018.  The railings around the now dead Thorn on Wearyall Hill, which was vandalised in 2010  on Wearyall Hill, continue to be decorated with abundant ribbons, some Tibetan prayer-flags, and other offerings.

The surviving tree in churchyard of St John the Baptist looks to be decrepit, but the one in St Bartholomew’s churchyard remains healthy.  The Abbey was not visited, so the fate of the tree there is unknown.
