Made of stainless steel, “Sundial” by David Harber was installed on a granite plinth in The Forum in 1999.

It was presented by the developers Richardson Condwell, and bears the words from William Blake’s poem “Auguries of Innocence”: ‘To see the world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower, To hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.’

The directions towards Stevenage’s four twin towns are marked on it, and the location of Stevenage, which is Latitude north 51 54′ 17″, Longitude west 00 12′ 08″.
