    What a little gem! The chapel is very well kept and so peaceful. The award winning garden is delightful and the almshouses have been well restored and are an interesting glimpse into the past. Amazing...  more »

    Very cute little church, garden and houses a bit further up the main Glastonbury high street. Worth a visit if you haven't been before but it is very small. Free entry.  more »
