Church on a hill

Artist's Description

“SILENCE IS A SOURCE OF GREAT STRENGTH”

Lao Tzu

I really love this area, around Brent Tor. I was driving around Dartmoor (England) alone in an old car …… in winter. It was a wonderful and serene day, no tourists yet because it was too cold!! It is a maize of roads on Dartmoor – easy to get lost too.

The origins of the name Brent Tor are old Devonian, a Brythonic Celtic language related to Cornish, Welsh and Breton and spoken in Devon until the early middle ages ‘Bryn’ and ‘tor’ meaning ‘hill of the rock tower’. Interestingly, there is a farm near Brentor, which is named Brinsabach, from ‘Bryn’ and ‘bach’, meaning ‘small hill’ (named after the Tor). The church on the hill is the church of St. Michaels.
