St. Michael De Rupe. Brentor Church, August 1982
Perched on the top of Brentor, a former volcano, on the western fringe of Dartmoor is the church of St. Michael de Rupe.
The Church of St Michel de Rupe ("Saint Michael of the Rock") atop the Tor dates to the 13th century, and measures 15 feet (4.6 m) wide and 37 feet (11 m) long. The tower is 40 feet (12 m) high and houses five bells.
The Church has a capacity of approximately forty people. Although there is a newer (19th century) church in Brentor village, which is used for many services, St Michael's is still used on Christmas Day, Easter Day and for Evensong during the summer.
