Time Plaque Sponsorship

The cast bronze Time Plaques were designed by our astronomer Gordon Taylor. They enable conversion of apparent solar time into Greenwich Mean Time, with an eye to children being able to understand.

  Each sponsor’s Time Plaque is positioned on The Dials.

  Includes a quotation about time of their choice.

  If you are interested in sponsoring a Time Plaque, please contact us.

  If you would like to know more about how the Dials were orientated for accurate time telling and some fascinating history behind it, see Orientating for Sundial Time.
