Restarting an ancient tradition last year, the procession from Stonehenge back to
the community at Amesbury as an escort to the sacred flame, lit at sunset at Stonehenge.
With a modern twist we carry lanterns which appeals to old and young alike. This
year we had to change the day for the procession to Solstice eve, simply because
of the extra complications caused by the ‘Dec 21st 2012 factor’. Starting on the
avenue opposite the heel stone Frank started the celebrations with a brief ceremony
to honour our ancestors, celebrate our community, and salute the next generation
for whom we hope to leave guardianship of a better world.
It’s sunset !!!!
Everyone who took part, organised, marshaled and made this such a special event again
this year should feel very pleased as this is such good fun, it’s meaningful, and
it brings our community together
