Lankester Quad

Lankester Quad is named after the University Surveyor, Jack Lankester, who was the architect of the surrounding buildings.

A plaque under the arch beneath the clock tower recalls the award by the Oxford Preservation Trust for his sympathetic rendering of a Georgian style.

The highly technical job of calculating the position of the various time lines on the sundial and delineating them was undertaken by Christopher SDtJ H Daniel MBE, President of the British Sundial Society and a prolific designer of sundials whose work can be seen all over the country and ranges from private commissions to major public works.
