Lud's Church (Natural Rock Feature) — Folklore

As well as the Gawain and The Green Knight Story I have also heard that the only time the sun shines directly into Lud's church is at midday on the summer solstice. I don't know whether it is true or not, never having been lucky enough to get there on the day in question. However if it is true then maybe that is how it got it's name as Lugh (commonly anglicised to Lud, as in Ludgate in London) was a Celtic sun god. While visiting also go to Hanging stone which is a couple of miles away and well worth the visit.
