Suffolk and Shetland Days

Waking up this morning to films of Stonehenge reminds us that today is the summer solstice, midsummers day, Suffolk Day and Shetland Day.

Suffolk celebrate their country on this day, being the first county to see the summer sunrise, as they are the most easterly county.

Shetland also celebrate the date as it the longest day, which, given that they are the northern most county, gives the a very long day compared to the mainland (more than 19 hours!)
