“St Michael’s Mount is a tidal island in Mount’s Bay, Cornwall, United Kingdom. The island is a civil parish and is linked to the town of Marazion by a man-made causeway. The causeway is made of granite setts and is passable between mid-tide and low water. In prehistoric times, St Michael’s Mount may have been a port for the tin trade.

Legend has it, before a castle was built, the island was once home to an 18-foot giant named Cormoran who lived in a cave. In his cave were his ill-gotten treasures obtained by terrorising local towns and villages. But a young farmer’s son named Jack took on this gigantic menace, who had an appetite for cattle and children, and killed him by trapping him in a concealed pit, bringing down his axe upon his head. So when he returned home, the elders in the village gave him a hero’s welcome, and henceforth, called him Jack the Giant Killer“.

The Photograph for this Greeting Card from Cornwall was taken at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens. www.tremenheere.co.uk
