TQ3081 : Seven Dials

taken 10 years ago, near to London, City of London, Great Britain

Seven Dials
Seven Dials
There are in fact only six, one for each of the six roads that originally met here - although it is also said that the pillar itself acts as the seventh sundial. At one time there was a pub on each street apex and the area was notorious for crime and destitution. Only The Crown, opposite, remains and the 7 streets that now converge here are filled with upmarket shops and eateries.
The dial itself is a replacement erected in the 1980's.
