Glastonbury Festival site, panoramic photo 2 2019

Glastonbury Festival site photos

Apart from a very slight increase in traffic, there haven’t been many changes in life around the Glastonbury Festival site since my last update. But would you believe it – despite staring over there an hour ago, it wasn’t until Chris zoomed in on the photo that we realised the Glastonbury super-fence is on its way up!…

We were thrown by the fact the fence building team are starting somewhere different this year! It’s to the South-West of The Park.

If you’re already a regular visitor here, don’t worry, all my usual content will continue, but I’ll also be popping up extra posts about Glastonbury Festival and sharing panoramic photos of our view of the festival site. These are particularly for my e-festivals friends, but I hope they’ll interest you too! I can’t take credit for these – Chris has a better camera and knows how to use it, so these are from him. Zoom in and scroll!

Oh, also, if you follow me @HelenHobden on Instagram, I’ll be posting more regularly on my Stories photo updates of the build-up to the festival. I’ll save them to a Highlights folder. Here’s the view I am grateful for every day:

Ps. If you would like to support this site, please consider purchasing your festival clothing from Threads of a Fairytale – all handmade by me!

3 days in new york – Day 1. The story of the photographs
February 10, 2017
Oh dear, I had trouble narrowing down the number of photos of New York to include to make it a reasonable length blog post! We did a hell of a lot each day, so I had to include enough to illustrate that, and I managed to get it down to fifteen photos, which I thoroughly enjoyed preparing. By the way, I should explain that this is the first post about the epic holiday our family went on last July. (I’ve had so many blog post ideas that it’s taken me this long to get to it!) I’ve decided that pictures speak a thousand words, so these are mainly going to be photography based travel blog posts, rather than tonnes of information provided. However, if you’d like more information about anything I mention, please just ask in the comments – I’ve got a box full of leaflets and tickets and a detailed diary to refer to.
Muchelney Abbey, Somerset – the story of the photographs
February 26, 2017
Last July my parents came to stay for a few days and as they are recent members of English Heritage, we looked around for local attractions near me in Somerset. Muchleney Abbey is (unsurprisingly) in the village of Muchelney on the Somerset levels with the nearest town being Langport. It’s in a beautiful peaceful spot, and the perfect location for a picnic, but as we didn’t come prepared, we bought ice creams from the little shop there, and then found a cute place for afternoon tea further down the road afterwards. Although the south cloister is still intact, sadly as usual, Henry VIII is to blame for the ruined state of the rest of the abbey. It is the Tudor Abbott’s house that can be explored properly….
3 Days in Oxford – Day 3. The story of the photographs
November 9, 2016
We’ve now come to my last day in Oxford and after breakfast, I sadly checked out of the hotel and drove to the park and ride. I bussed into the city where I was dropped off near the bottom of St Aldates and began walking all the way up to a lovely clothes shop called Olivia May on Little Clarendon Street where it snowed heavily for about half an hour. Then on route to the Natural History Museum, the sun came out and it was so hot, I took my coat off (bloody British weather). Of course, I took lots of photos on the way……
