The dial is on the west front of the Cathedral.
It is painted over nine courses of stone-work as black lines and numerals on a white ground. There is gold infill to the large ‘1762’ (the original date) and to ‘arrow’ heads on the half hour markers. Upright Roman numerals give the hours from 2 pm to 8 pm with IV for 4 pm. The subdivisions are half and quarter hours.
Four dates are given, in Arabic numerals, on the face of the dial: 1762, 1914, 1968 and 2009. These record the original date and subsequent restorations.
This is one of three dials on the walls of the Cathedral.
