solstice sunrise

For those who can't decide if there's not enough day, or not enough night!

*** WARNING ***

Do not EVER look directly at the Sun through a telescope or in any other way, unless you have the proper filters and have been educated in their proper use. This can cause INSTANT eye damage, and remember, you only get ONE pair of eyes!

Hi. I'm afraid I'm not very knowledgeable on all things astronomical but I'm interested in what goes on in the sky. On June 21st I decided to watch the solstice sunrise and went and stood on Rosemullion head in Cornwall (Lat. 50 6.56N, Long. 5 4.86W) and was surprised to see the sun rising over St Anthony Head (Lat.50 8.5N, Long. 5 0.95W). I thought the sun always stayed in the southern half of the sky so can anyone explain why it appeared to be rising to the north?
Thanks very much for any answers.
Regards
Tim
