  • This vertical dial fits well with the gothic style of the memorial chapel. The sundial gnomon and its fittings appear to be cast bronze, appropriately ornate and quite beautiful. Arabic numerals are chiseled into the stone wall, marking the hours of 6, 9, 11, 12, 1, 3 and 6. Other hour lines are unlabeled.

  • The chapel entrance is patterned after the south porch of a church in Castlecombe, Wiltshire in England built in the 12th century. The sundial does not date from this period but matches the building style.
