It's amazing, here in New England, how many of our cities and towns carry identical names to those in the UK, but this was the earliest settled area in the country along with Virginia.
I have a pen friend, an American who lives in Boston MA.

Glastonbury is a nice place. Ok its my spiritual home being an old hippie type, but there's plenty to see there.

I looked online at the Wilderness Gathering briefly but it did look interesting to me. I will find out more.

I think you can avoid spaghetti junction by taking the toll road but I've driven through it lots of times and apart from the traffic jams had no problems. Have you got a sat Nav?
Yes, you're right about that.

The M6 toll takes you away eastwards towards London although you can then pick up the M42 and pitch back around to the M5 ....but it's expensive.

I have travelled the M5/M6/A7 from Bristol to Scotland probably a thousand times and never once had a serious problem through Birmingham. The Smart motorway system has vastly improved traffic flow.

The area around Preston and around Stoke can be far more problematical.

If you choose your timings right.......no problemo.

As for an earlier comment about Glastonbury being run down!!!!!!
Noooooooooo!

It's Bohemian.....Hippyfied.......Atmospheric......

That's it's Charm ( and you can get plenty of those there!!)

Re: Glastonbury out of season

The last time I went to Glastonbury (3 or 4 years ago) I was really disappointed by the commercialisation of the village. It was about as spiritual as a cow pat!
