My notes on the Corpus Clock:


If you are in Cambridge, listen out for the chimes from Great St Mary's
church next to the market square - the GSM chimes were copied for the
palace of Westminster's clock tower.

Trinity's clock is based on the design of the palace of Westminster's

Frank King has information about some notable sundials:

The Royal Greenwich Observatory was housed next to Cambridge University's
Institute of Astronomy for several years before it was finally shut down.
