About the area
The village of Meare lies 3 miles west of Glastonbury and about 5.5 miles south east of Wedmore. Wells and Street are also within easy reach.
Meare is a village and civil parish and has been a settled site for even longer than Glastonbury. The parish Church of St Mary, formerly in the keeping of Glastonbury Abbey dates from 1323 and is a Grade I listed building. The village also has a primary school, a number of societies and clubs and a good community spirit.
Glastonbury’s past and present are linked with its dominant landmark, the Tor. It’s been a religious centre throughout history and further back into the times of legends. There was a Celtic monastery here by 500AD which, during the next 1000 years evolved into one of England's wealthiest and most influential abbeys. The town grew up alongside the Abbey and by the 18th century had received a charter and had become a manufacturing and trading centre. Today it’s a thriving market town and a major tourist venue, welcoming thousands of visitors each year. Medieval Glastonbury - designated a conservation area - clusters around the evocative ruins of the Abbey.
The Saxon village of Wedmore has existed for well over a thousand years and is a delightful and extremely active centre. There are historic buildings including the medieval church next to an old coaching inn, interesting and varied shops including essentials such as the newsagent, butcher, chemist etc. Together with others usually only found in larger county towns, plus pubs, restaurants and tea rooms.
