Erection date: 8/9/2000


The Millennium Fountain by Wendy Taylor CBE.
Unveiled by the Worshipful the Mayor of Enfield, Councillor Andreas Constantinides 8th September 2000.

The fountain commemorates the project to restore the nearby New River Loop undertaken by London Borough of Enfield in partnership with Enfield Preservation Society and Thames Water Ltd with the support of a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The sundial is man's oldest astronomical instrument. The gnomon is pointing true North and is parallel to the axis of the Earth. Due to a combination of the tilt of the Earth's axis and the varying speed of the Earth's elliptical progress around the Sun, the indicted time will often differ by several minutes either way from Greenwich Mean Time, the maximum being 16 minutes. The greatest differences occur in February and October. During British Summer Time one hour must be added to the indicated time.
