Portland Square - non market days

The largest sun dial in the United Kingdom in the heart of Portland Square, Sutton-in-Ashfield,

It was unveiled in April 1995 as a reminder to the town's historic watch-makers, such as John Boot (1705-1767) whose workshop was believed to be on the corner of King Street. The design of the barriers around Portland Square also reflect the history of the town's watch-makers, depicting the cogs and inner workings of clocks and watches.
