J5081 : Sundial, Bangor

taken 6 years ago, near to Bangor, Northern Ireland

Sundial, Bangor
Sundial, Bangor
Old sundial located in front of Bangor Castle (the current Town Hall). The plaque reads "This sundial served the important monastery at Bangor. Though damaged, it is a survival from the late early Christian period, probably the tenth to twelfth centuries. Three main rays indicated the main daytime services at the third sixth and ninth hours but only the noon (sixth hour) ray is now clear. An early sundial has been reconstructed an Nendrum, Mahee Island, County Down, and a third can be seen in Clogher Cathedral, County Tyrone." Also seen in J5081 : The Bangor sundial.
