With the Earth’s Rotation \\\\ Summer Solstice //// Coast to Coast \\\\ Sundown to Sunrise //// An Overnight Walk

In June 2016 artist Abigail Reynolds and historian Sir Ferrers Vyvyan led an overnight walk on the Summer Solstice, setting off from Ogo-Dour Cove near Mullion on the west coast of the Lizard peninsula at dusk and reaching Godrevy beach, near St Keverne on the east coast, just before dawn.  The walk followed an ancient ceremonial track across Goonhilly Downs to Dry Tree and from there by fields and footpaths to St Keverne and the coast.

It rained hard for the entire walk. Abigail Reynolds’s podcast narrates the experience of the walk, combining her own recollections with sound recorded en route, and with references to Russell Hoban’s novel Riddley Walker (1980), her literary companion throughout the night.
