Martin's Hole - Sun-Window in a Rock

There are two days in the spring and the summer in Elm when sunrise is especially eagerly anticipated. Or to be precise, the spectacle takes place shortly before sunrise. For it is then that the sun shines through the Martin's Hole directly onto the Church of Elm.
