   The first gallery is the chalice gardens.  This is at Glastonbury and it is a very peaceful place.  If you ever get to go there I recommend meditating by the chalice well. There are some lovely energies in this place and the people are very friendly.  There is also a very old spring which contains water with a high iron content.  This can be seen in the picture of the lions head which is where the water can taken from.  Look closely at the glass on the floor and see if you can see a face within.
