Winter solstice sunrise walk

Walk Overview

Join Simon on an early morning winter stroll at Merrivale looking at the winter sunrise and its relationship with the standing stones. Simon intends to hold a year-long session of guided walks exploring the Merrivale stone row complex through the next 12 months trying to unravel their meaning. It will take a year to do it !! If the weather is bad then the walk might slide forward or backwards accordingly to capture the best opportunity for viewing the sun as is appears at sunrise and disappears at sunset throughout the year. The walks will always start from Four Winds car park. Bring warm clothing and maybe a hot drink. After the winter sunrise walk Simon will be adjourning to the Fox Tor Cafe at Princetown for breakfast and you are welcome to join him to continue discussions over sausages! These walks will also look at the equinox sunsets and sunrises as well.
