Joseph of Arimathea is mentioned in all four gospels in the New Testament. He was a disciple of Jesus and asked Pilate for permission to bury Jesus's body after his crucifixion. He also donated the rock tomb where Jesus's body lay for 3 days until his resurrection. According to legend Joseph was a metal merchant and visited England to buy tin from Cornwall and lead from Somerset. He is said to have been Jesus's great uncle and to have founded a church at Glastonbury. He is also said to have brought Jesus with him to England when Jesus was a child. He is also associated with the legend of the Holy Grail and the original Holy Thorn tree is reputed to have grown from his staff, which he planted in the ground at Glastonbury.

Small garden with plaque
When I visited in December 2015 the garden looked in need of a bit of TLC and not much like how I imagine paradise to be!
