Adam Stout in the Archers Way Library

In 1755 Henry Hoare of Stourhead fame rescued the tower on Glastonbury Tor from imminent collapse. His actions may also have marked a turning-point in his landscaping project at Stourhead. Adam Stout reviews the evidence and suggests that the long and legendary connection between Glastonbury and the ancient Catholic family of Stourton may have helped to shape the famous park, and introduces us to the mighty Botolf Stourton, who it was said had held the pass against William the Conqueror at Glastonbury.
