Sunclocks Human Sundials

Human Sundials that use a persons own shadow to tell the correct clock time even daylight saving time, are used throughout the world.

Human Sundials are a fun interactive talking point for the public of all age groups.

Sunclocks are used in many areas such as:

  • Shopping Malls
  • Sea Fronts
  • Tourist Attractions
  • Parks
  • Theme parks
  • In the grounds of Planetariums
  • Churches Castles
  • Stately Homes

Sunclocks… Human Sundials are a simple long lasting non expensive way to “Upgrade” any area where the public gather into a “Must –  Be – Seen” attraction.

They can be painted onto concrete or bitumen surfaces using the appropriate paint.

Or if set out in a grassed area the components can be set just below the grass level to facilitate ease of mowing and to make them essentially vandal proof.

Councils often employ local artists to create wonderful attractive designs.


sundial1-1asundial3-3aThanks again George. I did make the date scale myself out of some sandstone slabs I had left over from my house when it was built. It was probably the hardest part of the build. I really enjoyed working out all the geometry when laying it, the instructions you gave made setting it up a breeze. Especially for a mathematical laymen like myself!
You may not see it in the photo but I have also installed a small brass sundial on a pedestal that was given to me as a gift years ago. It has the adjustment increments for adding and subtracting minutes depending on the month exactly as you described. Taking that into account, they are both quite accurate.

Thanks again,
