Did Jesus really visit the Holy Isle of Avalon as a young man? And did Joseph of Arimathea really found the first church here too?

Is King Arthur really buried with Guinevere in the Abbey grounds?

In this small guide book, local historian George Wingfield unravels some of the mysteries of this ancient English spiritual centre, telling its story from prehistory up to the present day. With rare old engravings and good walks around the town and its holy hills.
