The St Michael Line is England's spiritual backbone, its longest ley (that is, ley line) running from the Norfolk coastline in the northeast to the edge of Cornwall in the southwest. It gains its name from the holy hills and churches along its dead straight course dedicated to the archangel Michael. Along its course are some of the country's most well known sacred places including the White Horse of Uffington, Wayland Smithy long barrow, Avebury stone circle complex, Silbury Hill, West Kennet long barrow, Glastonbury, with its abbey, tor and holy well; Brent Tor's church of St Michael, the Cheesewring and Hurlers triple stone circle on Exmoor, St Michael's Mount, and finishing at the Merry Maidens stone circle. Journeying along the Michael Line is a pilgrimage to some and a psychic quest to others. The achievement of each stage on the journey brings with it a spiritual insight, a moment of enlightenment that culminates with a Grail like experience that is transformatory in its implications. This is something that all members of the tour will have a chance to experience and achieve. In addition to the incredible journey along the Michael Line the tour diverts to take in an early morning, private viewing of Stonehenge and a visit to a crop circle in the area of Marlborough or Avebury. There will be a chance to relax and recharge your batteries in Glastonbury and also at the end of the trip in the tranquil landscape of West Penwith in Cornwall, when guests will get a chance to see the Men an Tol megalithic structure and other sites in the area.
