Lewes Tump on Solstice Morning


About a dozen of us gathered on the Lewes Tump at 7.30 yesterday morning to watch the Winter Solstice sunrise.

Dirk Campbell played a Bulgarian melody on his eastern European bagpipes as we danced (or in my case shuffled) in a circle.

The sky was a blaze of red until at about 8.15 the sun rose to the west of Firle Beacon.

Breakfast at Bill’s – the best cafe in Lewes! (Not quite true – the best cafe is LaPorte’s…but it was closed. The owner was worshipping the sun too).
