A human sundial for the park

sundialA very generous local resident has recently sponsored the installation of a human (or “analemmatic“) sundial in the middle of the lavender garden.

It is set to GMT so, on a sunny day, go and stand on the correct month, as marked on the central stone, and see if your shadow gives an accurate time reading (in summer, your shadow will be a hour ahead!).

We are delighted by this fascinating addition to the park and are very grateful to the Wells family for their inspired idea.
