Summer Solstice / Solar Day

Midsummer Boulevard is aligned with the rising sun on the summer solstice and The Milton Keynes Rose sits on this line. 

Gordon Young said “Midsummer day is about the Milton Keynes Rose being on the Midsummer Boulevard line – I feel this is a neolithic site”. Milton Keynes was the first place in the UK to build an active solar house, the Bradville Solar House, in 1972.
