Long Description:
The Dial Arch

This arch of 1720 overlooks Dial Square, named for the sundial in the centre, site of the Royal Gun Factories where gun barrels were bored out. In 1886, the workers here formed a football club, Dial Square FC. Poor attendances led to a move to ‘London’ in 1912 under their later, better known name of Arsenal.

The sundial now sits over the entrance to a pub with the pub being built around the arch.
Sundial Type: Vertical - Wall mounted dial plate
