6. More Information
Externally funded with support from Stalybridge DA, this multifaceted sculpture is both a stylised depiction of a pair of lock gates and a giant working sundial. The sculptural lock gates are angled in such a way that on a sunny day; the shadow of the main north facing beam falls on a heel stone telling the time. This is believed to be one of the biggest working sundials in the country. The hours are marked on the 'heel stones' with both Roman and Arabic numerals.
