The Fleet Street Heritage Sundial is the public face of the project and is now completed.
The next stage is the development of the information panels and the
associated website. We are planning to produce at least 75 information panels, typically of 700 words or so, with two pictures on each panel.
Each panel will be linked with a QR code to a parallel sister page
on this website
The information panels will be in 3 broad groups. The draft list of
subjects is shown below. Panels finished or under active development are starred **.
We hope current newspapers will
produce their own text together with a scan of their original masthead and a small section from the first page of the first issue.
The information panels will be made available to local organisations who wish to
stage exhibitions. We are
also looking for local sites for
the long-term display of these panels
Please visit our new shop
The overall plan is to produce
30 or so information panels for each of the 3 volumes. We
have only just started on this
task. We have posted some examples from each volume,
and we are adding 4 or more new pages every month, so
you can form a good idea of
our aims. Please send us
We are urgently looking for
researchers/writers who can
help us to produce the panels
for Volumes I and II. Please
contact us, telling us from the
list below, which subject you
would like to start on. We
pay an honorarium of £100
for each completed page.
Sundial was opened in
October 2021, and is the
public face of this project.
It is believedto be the largest vertical sundial in the UK.
