This globe dial came originally from Torridon House in Bearsden, but now stands in front of the main University building, to the east of the tower. It was bequeathed to the University in 1964 and erected in 1971.
The British Sundial Society
Welcome to the BSS Website
Since 1989 The British Sundial Society has promoted the understanding of sundials by collecting detailed information on dials in the UK, publishing the quarterly BSS Bulletin containing a wide range of articles on all aspects of dialling and running annual conferences for members.
On this website you can query and locate interesting dials, learn how dials work, get practical tips on how to construct dials or contact experts in all aspects of dialling. Details of the Society's publications and events are also available.
If you would like to learn more or have questions on any aspect of dialling, please contact the relevant members. In the meantime, please enjoy our website.
This is an update to the previous post about the 2014 One Day Meeting. Please note that lectures will start at 10:00, not 11:00 as stated in the previous attachment. The time has been correct in the revised leaflet.
For members who are invited to give talks about sundials or the BSS, or for anyone who wishes to promote the Society’s activities, updated versions of the BSS brochure and flyer are now available for downloading and printing.
|Brochure – two-sided|
|Flyer – two-up|
The brochure is two-sided and should be folded in three: if your printer does not handle duplex printing then print one side first, reinsert the paper (typically for inkjet printers the printed side should be uppermost but please do a test print first) and then print side two. The flyer prints two copies side-by-side on a single sheet so should be split in half after printing.
