Marion Bowman analyses one particular pilgrimage destination, Glastonbury, which has attracted pilgrims for centuries, and which today is a religious centre visited by people of a variety of traditions, from Roman Catholics and Anglicans to followers of New Age movements. She describes its multiple meanings and the diverse nuances attached to the site by different groups, and the incomers and locals.
