St. Michael's Tower, Glastonbury Tor
St Michael's Church was built in the 1360's and survived until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539 when the Tor was where Richard Whiting, the last Abbot of Glastonbury Abbey, was hanged, drawn and quartered along with two of his monks. The remains of St. Michael's Tower were restored in modern times. It is a grade I listed building and is managed by the National Trust.
