Glastonbury St Michael

Philip Rahtz demonstrated by archaeological excavation that the church was preceeded by a Dark Age settlement and later Anglo-Saxon monastery. The tower survives from the church built in the early 14th-century after an earthquake.

The tower is as rebuilt in the 14th and 15th centuries except it has lost its upper storey and shows many repairs to its fabric. The Tor is in the care of the National Trust.

ST 511 386, a landmark visible for miles at the summit of Glastonbury Tor.
