Views from the Tor

Rising 500 feet above the Somerset plain, the Tor is the major topographical site of the area. The tower on its peak is all that remains of the second church built on hill. Both were destroyed by earthquakes. Arthurian legend has the mortally injured king taken to the Isle of Avalon on a boat, to be healed and put to sleep for millennium until he is need again (one story) or to be cared for until his death and buried. Many people the Tor is hallow with many chambers. Could Arthur sleep under this gentle slope? Will he return when needed and is the time now?
