The Glastonbury Thorn is supposedly found only here and in the Holy Land. The story is that Joseph of Arimathea visited here on a merchant voyage. He supposedly stuck his staff in the ground where it sprouted into a tree. He took this as a sign and built a church here from mud and willow branches. This tree like all Glastonbury Thorns is said to be descended from the original.
