Real Ale, Pilgrimage & CIDER!

on June 27, 2014

We very rarely stop for breath these days at Melwood! But following our very successful event at The Baltic Social John and I were able to get away for a few days for our bi annual Solstice Pilgrimage to Glastonbury.  Not the festival mind; that’s in the neighbouring village of Pilton a few miles down the road, but the actual town of Glastonbury, the sacred Isle of Avalon.  It’s a place that means a lot to us and we visit every Solstice and climb Glastonbury Tor to watch the sun rise on this special day.  It was spectacular this year I must say and I have posted pictures of the sun on twitter and facebook.  We had a lovely few days away (although not exactly relaxing) but it took our minds off our normal BUSY, BUSY, BUSY lives!

We ended our trip with a very strange visit to Roger Wilkins Cider Farm in Mudgley just down the road from Glastonbury.  Strange in that it was down the narrowest, longest scary lane and was a ‘different world’ when we got there. Very ‘local’ if you get me!  Anyway Roger’s cider is my favourite cider of all time and we wanted to buy some for ourselves and a 30 litre box for our next event.  Roger turned out to be quite friendly and obliged with said cider.  We bought his strawberries too and they were delish!

Here are a few pics of our time away – note the Banksy at Roger Wilkins farm….
