Stone Circle sundial at Chatsworth

Old news (2010) but as there can't be many sundials or sculptures that namecheck stone circles, worth noting.

A NEW sundial sculpture showing the distance to 42 stone circles and earthworks in Derbyshire has been unveiled at Chatsworth in time for this year's summer solstice.

Timepiece was designed specifically for Chatsworth's world-famous, 105 acre garden by the artist Gary Breeze and is said to unite ancient and modern ways of telling the time.

Yes but does it come with instructions?

I can't make head nor tail of how you're supposed to tell the time with it, and is it adjustable for BST?

Also, why is it made of stone quarried in Yorkshire ??
