The Sunday Telegraph - Travel - - Cover Story - St Michael’s Brent Tor, Dart­moor, Devon (3 Miles)

Few churches re­ward quiet con­tem­pla­tion, both in­side and out, as much as 13th-cen­tury St Michael de Rupe (St Michael of the Rock) atop Brent Tor on the western fringes of Dart­moor. Like a smaller ver­sion of Glas­ton­bury Tor, but wilder, it dom­i­nates the land­scape for miles around. It’s a blowy but easy walk to the top, through mead­ows and a short, steep scram­ble with panoramic views over Dart­moor to the east.
