The Little Church On The Tor
One of the chapters of Forever Onward, Battling The Beast of Dartmoor has the title The Little Church On The Tor. It refers to a real place, the church of St Michael de Rupe, which perches atop the granite cone of Brentor. This unique house of worship plays a key role in my gothic chiller.
“Brent Tarr is a church on a very High hill; I believe nearest heaven of any church in England. The people are very rude and brutish”. - Dr James Younge, Devon diarist, circa 1680
