Description: We will be guided on a tour of selected Cambridge sundials by Dr Frank King, Chairman of the British Sundial Society who also happens to be Master of the Cambridge University Guild of Change Bell Ringers. Frank has posted a useful summary of Cambridge dials on the web for those that want a little advanced reading. 

The tour will be preceded by a talk in Newnham College during which Frank King will explain some of the history and background to the design of sundials . . .

Subsequently, we will be taken by mini-bus to Bill Metcalf’s home just to the north of Cambridge for a BBQ where you can also view a modern armillary sphere.

Max size of party: 23 as dictated by mini-bus

Cost: £28.50 including minibus transfers and BBQ.
