Analemmatic sun-dial
Analemmatic sun-dial
Port Sunlight Garden Village; on the main boulevard in front of Lady Lever Art Gallery.
"An analemmatic sundial is a particular kind of horizontal sundial in which the shadow-casting object is vertical, and is moved depending on the date, or to be more precise, depending on the declination of the sun on a given day. The time is read from the dial by noting where the shadow cast by the vertical pin crosses hour points laid out on an ellipse". from LinkExternal link
