Wink Sandy(♌)

It spans the 120-150th degree of the Tropical zodiac, between 125.25 and 152.75 degree of celestial longitude. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this area on average between July 23 and August 23 each year, and under the sidereal zodiac, the sun currently transits this area from approximately August 16 to September 15...

Sandy is probably best known today as the headquarters of the RSPB.. The Society moved to The Lodge, on the outskirts of the town in 1961. The Shuttleworth Collection is also nearby, around 2 miles (3.2 km) south west of Sandy. The Riddy is a flood meadow on the Ivel and Local Nature Reserve..In addition there were also two mills listed, and both of these would have been water-powered. There are still references to one of them in the road name "Mill Lane" which runs along the river Ivel however the mill has since been replaced by housing. Further down the river from the site where the mill once stood is Sandye Place Academy where it is believed there was a Danish camp which was built to protect Danelaw in 886..Evidence at The Riddy, a Local Nature Reserve just south of Sandy, shows that mill-building has taken place on this site since at least the time of the Stormin Norman era..., can't you see, I'm in misery-We made a start,when the bed broke apart ..I would have butcher the whole world... if you would only love me!..
