A Larger Mount


St. Michael's Mount is a lump of rock that lurks in Mount's Bay between Marazion and Penzance. It is almost an island but there is a causeway connecting it to the mainland which can be traversed when the tide is low-ish. (Fret ye not if you didn't bring a tide chart with you, there are little boats to take you back and forth when the tide is in).

On the top of the rock is the magical castle where the elves who make all Marks & Spencer's stuff live. Unfortunately, as the Reporting Team visited during the dead of winter they were unable to gain access to Niebelheim!
