Project to mark the millennium

This novel project to mark the millennium - yes, a sundial - is to be located in Greenwich Park, on the zero meridian, of course. Its designer, Christopher St J H Daniel, a stripling of 66, tells us that 'throughout history, time has been measured by the movement of the earth relative to the sun and the stars'. Doubtless it was this exciting information which persuaded English Heritage, Royal Parks and the Stone Federation to shell out £500,000 on the project.
