College Green Sundial
The centre-piece of College Green is a circular stone seat with a fluted Doric column rising through the centre, topped by a cubical sundial.
The seat is supported by four carved stone 'lions couchants' (the lions are depicted in a lying position, with the head raised and the legs tucked close to and below the body).
The sundial was created in 1730 and was originally located in the grounds of Drakelowe Hall in south Derbyshire. The Hall was demolished in 1934 and, in the 1950s, a power station was built on the site.
