High Places.

Postby Kirbstone » Mon Apr 09, 2018 2:13 am

Historically, St Michael has been associated with high places, or so it seems.

While down in Kerry for Easter we attended a very moving Easter Day service in the local chapel which has a lovely modern stained glass depiction of a mini-skirted St Michael and the Skelligs, sea & birds &c. The larger Skellig is named Skellig Michael and there are (at least) two other high places not very far away also named after the saint. I've been to all three.

St Michael's Mount in Cornwall is one of the oldest harbours in Cornwall Possibly 11 Centuary, used for exporting tin and other minerals

The village of Marazion on the mainland is a similarly anchient market town......The occupant of the Mount,Lord St Levan, has given the ownership

to the National Trust .As far as I can remember he will remain the resident for the next couple of hundred years.

His Lordship has his own ceremonial craft, rowed by his personal crew of Hobblers......The Mount is reached via a Tidal Causeway and

a fleet of motor ferries operated by the modern hobblers....... A complete community on an Island .........weeladdie
