The London Wetlands Centre, Barnes, London - 420 x 420 sundial on a solid oak plinth

This sundial is a memorial to Max Nicholson who was much involved with the Wildlife and Wetlands Trust, and many other parts of the environmental movement. (More details on www.maxnicholson.com). The hour lines have Arabic numerals for summer time and Roman for winter time; between the hour lines are short ten-minute lines and five-minute spots. This picture was taken at 17 minutes to 1 in November 2004, just after the sundial was put in place.
The mirror-polished stainless steel gives strong reflections, and the gnomon, which casts the shadow, appears to "float in air" because the matt circle appears to be continuous though part of it is in fact a reflection. For about 5 minutes at solar noon, when the sun is at its highest in the sky, a line of light shines through the slit in the gnomon. This design feature is used to orient the sundial exactly to true North so that it can be read to the nearest minute or two
The sundial is located outside the Peacock Tower, a 3-storey hide which overlooks the old reservoirs beside the River Thames at Barnes in west London. The tower is seen below with the buildings on the north side of the river in the background.
