Those visiting the Glastonburyfestival
this year will not just be able to enjoy the bright lights and music down at Worthy Farm in Pilton, as the National Trust plans to provide a bit of extra illumination for those staying in festival
During the event, which takes place from June 23rd to 27th, St Michael's Tower on top of Glastonbury
Tor will be lit up at night, the first time this has happened in the 40-year history of the musical extravaganza.Glastonbury
Tor is owned by the National Trust, which will be at Glastonbury
for the first time this year and its manager for the Somerset countryside Andy Mayled commented: "We wanted to do something special to mark the important role that the festival
plays in Somerset life and to celebrate its 40th birthday."
Some may be inspired to don some walking boots
and take a walk up the hill, or even explore further the hilly scenery of Somerset, with Exmoor National Park not far off.
Exmoor covers 694 sq km of land and for those seeking a climbing challenge, its highest point is Dunkery Beacon at 519 m (1,702 ft).
