Glastonbury. The Somerset Levels

The Somerset Levels were an area of marshland and lagoons on the edge of the Bristol Channel with Glastonbury Tor, which you can see on the horizon, being an island. Between the 10th and 14th centuries local abbeys drained the area for cultivation.

In 1607 the whole area was devastated by a tsunami some 8 metres high.

This part of the levels is called Ham Wall and is a Nature Reserve run by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.
