I live in Wantage which is near to an ancient chalk carving called White Horse Hill. It is believed that White Horse Hill was used as a hillfort, one of a line of hill forts along a byway called the Ridgeway. Adjacent to the White Horse Hill is a man-made hill called Dragon Hill and it is here that Druids come to perform rituals during the solstices.
Today is the Summer Solstice and I left my home at 4am this morning in order to catch the sunrise from Dragon Hill; the sunrise was to occur at 4:43am. The White Horse Hill/Dragon Hill/Uffington Hill Fort is owned and maintained by the National Trust. It is a place of beauty, it has a long history and many traditions. This no doubt inspires people to come to visit. Its beauty and history make the area a magnet for the curious and the spiritually minded.
From the carpark at White Horse Hill, it is a five minute walk to Dragon Hill. I was lucky enough to see Druids performing ritual as the sun came up. It was an unforgettable experience.
