Summer Solstice 21 Miles


LIVE EVENT – You have 2 months from the date of purchase to complete this medal.

You can earn your own Summer Solstice Medal with 21 Miles. The term summer solstice is derived from Latin and means ‘the sun stands still’. It marks the moment the sun reaches its highest elevation in the Northern Hemisphere, providing the UK with the the longest day of the year with sunlight that lasts for almost 17 hours. The sarsen stones at Stonehenge, put up in at the centre of the site in about 2500 BC, were carefully aligned to line up with the movements of the sun. If you were to stand in the middle of the stone circle on midsummer’s day, the sun rises just to the left of the Heel Stone, an outlying stone to the north-east of the monument.

A donation has been made for this event to English Heritage.
