Photographer's Note

Glastonbury Tor is a hill in Glastonbury, Somerset, England, which features the roofless St. Michael's Tower and forms an iconic part of the local landscape. The site is managed by the National Trust. It is been designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument (No: 196702).
Tor is a local word of Celtic origin meaning "rock outcropping" or "hill". The Tor has a striking location in the middle of the Summerland Meadows, part of the Somerset Levels. The plain is actually reclaimed fenland out of which the Tor once rose as an island but now, with the surrounding flats, is a peninsula washed on three sides by the River Brue.
There are two set foot paths leading up to St. Michael's Tower, i unfortunately decided to walk up the side. i say walk staggered, by its steep. i would suggest using the foot paths, its much easier.
