Sundial on the Keelmen's Hospital
Taken at 13:23 GMT on 11th March, when the sundial should be 10 minutes slow. Looking at how the gnomon is fixed, you must be meant to read the inner (left) edge of the shadow, and it would be set to local solar time at GMT -6 minutes, but I think it's nearly 10 minutes out even so.
