  • A 38 inch diameter porcelain on steel vertical dial declining 14.73 west of east with a nodus on the gnomon using a 7/8-inch diameter brass ball. The dial face shows Arabic hour numerals, solstice and equinox seasonal lines and a solar noon mark at 1:19:51 PM. The dial is corrected for longitude but has no Equation of Time plaque. It is not know why the street was named Sundial Crescent but, living there, the owners wanted a sundial.
