Subject: RE: Folklore: Glastonbury thorn destroyed
Hilary, it's just a tree. It has a tenuous connection with the Grail Legends, but this particuar tree had really not been there long and there are far better examples in Glastonbury itself. It appears that it was neither old enough or important enough to have TPO and it will almst certainly grow back. The vandalism is inexcuseable, but it is really not as big a deal as some people make out.
