Ley lines are alignments of a number of places of geographical interest, such as ancient monuments and megaliths, natural ridge-tops, and water-fords. Glastonbury is a central point where several ley lines intersect. The most famous intersection is often claimed to occur at Glastonbury Tor. These ley lines connect Glastonbury to other sacred sites, creating a network of energy or mystical significance.
One popular ley line said to converge at Glastonbury is the Michael Line, which connects St. Michael’s Mount in Cornwall, through Glastonbury Tor, and continues to Hopton-on-Sea in Norfolk. Another ley line associated with Glastonbury is the St. Mary or St. Bridget Line, which connects St. Michael’s Mount with Avebury.
