According to legend, Glastonbury Tor in Somerset is the location of the magical Isle of Avalon of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere. Jesus is also supposed to have been there in his youth.

It's also the location of the annual Glastonbury rock festival - the largest of its kind in the world.

Amongst the acts performing this year are The Arctic Monkeys.

The picture was taken by amateur photographer John Davies from the Mendip Hills in Somerset.

The Tor famously provides the backdrop for the Glastonbury Festival which will takes place in late June.

The year's event sold out in record time, with 137,500 tickets snapped up in under two hours.

The Arctic Monkeys are due to headline, with Dame Shirley Bassey and The Who also confirmed. The full line-up will not be released until next month.
