Glastonbury tor is one of the most famous and sacred landmarks in the West Country. From the summit at 158 meters you can see three counties (Sommerset, Dorset and Wiltshire.).
Tor is a West Country word of Celtic origin meaning hill. The Tor has been a place of pilgrimage for over 10000 years.
On the summit is the St. Michaels´s Tower, part of a 14th-century church. It was built to replace a previous church which had been destroyed by an earthquake in 1275. The second church lasted until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539. At this time, the tor was the scene of the hanging of Richard Whiting, the last Abbot of Glastonbury.
