Thread Name: Folklore: Glastonbury thorn destroyed
Subject: RE: Folklore: Glastonbury thorn destroyed
There is a suggestion/assertion in the Daily Mail comments (some crazy people around, eh?) from a Glastonbury resident that it was done by the landowner, who is already in trouble from the failure of his currency exchange company, as an act of spite because he was refused planning permission to build houses there. No doubt unfounded of course. And it's only 49 years old anyway, so irritation rather than hysterics, eh?
