St Michael’s Tower at the Tor.
St Michael’s Tower at Glastonbury Tor once formed part of a church. The site was used for worship long before the church was there. All the same, worshippers still flock to this super hill with remnants from days gone by. Looking out over the landscape around, it easy to see why the mound was terraced for easier farming. The lowlands would no doubt have been under water regularly if not all the time. The Tower does not have a roof so lets daylight in as well as rain and snow.
Looking up inside, there are stones stuck out to have possibly carried flooring. One entry hole is larger than the other and two sides have no entrance at all.
As with any stone building, it is cooling on a sunny day inside and lush grass outside invites a seated break. Although you can get a bus part way to the Tor, there is still a steep stepped walk uphill to get here. This can take a while if you are not fit.
Looking out on the world from the larger doorway of St Michael’s Tower at Glastonbury Tor gives tremendous views. Glastonbury has connections with King Arthur as well as King Henry VIII.
Outside my works window.
Outside my works window yesterday I saw a fabulous person water skiing with great gusto. Fishing boats were going out and coming into Newlyn harbour as this took place. A short film of this is on our FB page or click the link above. Working along the Cornish coast often gives opportunities to catch some photos or a short film. I am so lucky!
