Glastonbury Tor

March 2, 2010 | by | 0 Comments

Dominating the Somerset levels the massive bulk of Glastonbury Tor is steeped in mystery and mythology.

Higher than the morning mist the view from the nearby Mendip Hills sees the Tor floating like an island in the clouds.

Archeological excavations on the Tor show it has been visited by man since the Neolithic era and has been linked with both King Arthur and the Holy Grail.

At the pinnacle of the 500ft sandstone mound sits the roofless St. Michael’s Tower which was built around 14th century ruins.

In all seasons the Tor is a powerful focal point, visible from miles around, and has been the subject of some of our favourite photographs.
