My entry for PARKFRIDAY

This is the sundial in Marsden Park (one of only three of a kind), it was my childhood playground and I spent the majority of my years in England living right by the side of it.....I do miss it!

The memories of childhood John!

There are a few places like this that I loved and I miss, but I can say hand on heart that I never miss living in England.
If I was ever to go back it would have to be to live in Cornwall, but that's not going to happen as I know full well that places I used to love there have changed so much from how I remember them to be.

No, my life is now here in Spain....and I don't regret a moment of it! :-)

A nice shot Meg but all of these things are surounded with a barrier of some kind to protect it from vandels.A sign of the times we live in today.!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually the sundial has always had those railing around it even back in the 1950's, it's a very rare piece so I guess they have always tried to protect it as best they could.

Have never seen a Sundial like this. I'd love to see it up close, standing against the railing, reading the time as it is, was or is going to be.
