Former England captain Beckham, planted a tree in front of the homes on the development with Mr Eavis’s grandchildren George, six, and Noah, four, before taking a tour of one of the properties.
Inside the home Beckham signed photographs, footballs and was even asked to sign a shirt for Pilton Football Club and was then jokingly asked if he would play for them.
The land was donated by Glastonbury Founder, Michael Eavis and is called Maggie’s Farm. The development now has 13 homes under construction and uses locally sourced natural stone obtained and prepared from Mr Eavis’s quarry. The properties, a mixture of one, two and three bedroom homes, will be offered to local people.
When asked what David thought of the Maggie’s Farm development he said “Obviously what Michael is doing and creating here is incredible. It is an honour for me to be part of this and I am excited as well.”
Michael Eavis said, ‘’This is one of the best things I have done and the homes will be part of my legacy that will still be standing in 1,000 years' time." Mr Eavis hopes that by 2020 there could be 50 homes standing.
