Rather interesting Glastonbury facts
Did you know the Sweet Track just outside Glastonbury dates from 3800BC and is the oldest engineered roadway in the world? What are now the Somerset Levels was a boggy forest, and this track was built of ash, lime and oak laid to create a timber causeway joining the edge of the marshland with an island over a mile away to allow a safe crossing place. It was rediscovered in 1970.
