We’re more than a little late posting these photographs from December, but better late than never. We had a little gathering in the fields just before Christmas to celebrate the Winter Solstice. In 2020, only three of us had been there at dusk, and we had vowed that if we managed to buy Manning’s Pit we would hold a proper celebration the next year. We had no idea that a year on we would still be in a pandemic, so the celebration was very low key, but some of us did bring candles and some brought mulled wine in flasks as well. Touch wood, let’s hope that in December 2022 we can do it properly, with some carol singing and mince pies as well.
