Golden Butts Road

Now, I couldn't get everyone in alongside the street name but, what you have to imagine is this: 

On this date, at 08:45 exactly, as the sun rises above the rooftops and hits the full length of the road, people stop what they're doing and step outside. From this corner of the street to the far end, they slowly turn their butts to the golden sun, spending a mindful two minutes appreciating Yorkshire.  

This tradition dates back to the eighteenth century and is currently enjoying a revival.
