St. Michael's Tor in Glastonbury atop a hill. This is a very special and sacred site! I hope to return to one day.   Glastonbury Tor is a conical hill in Somerset, England, which is topped by a 14th-century St. Michael's Tower. Rich in legend it is a popular destination for visiting tourists, Grail theorists, ley-line enthusiasts, and those who make the climb to enjoy its sweeping view of Somerset countryside.

Glastonbury Tor - Somerset, UK. Yes I did actually climb to the top. Rumored to be a place where the faeries play.

Several miles north of Glastonbury is a spot on the Mendip hills known as Deerleap. It is well known by local artists because of the far reaching views it provides over the Somerset Levels and of Glastonbury Tor nestled in amongst the hills. On misty mornings it is the perfect spot to appreciate just how flat the landscape is and how it would’ve looked thousands of years ago when the area was under water. On mornings like this it becomes an island once again.
