  Piers Nicholson, the designer, has a long history in sundial design. Two of his public sundials are in central London, the Tylers and Bricklayers Millennium sundial on Paul's Walk near the Millennium Bridge, and the Queens Walk Sundial, between City Hall and Tower Bridge.

The Millennium polar sundial near the Millennium Bridge in London, installed in 1999 He used to live in Bouverie Street, and has long wished to something to mark the long newspaper heritage of Fleet Street, which has now almost vanished (apart from the lettering on the Daily Express building and the mosaic lettering of the Dundee Courier, and People's Friend). The Queens Walk sundial between City Hall and Tower Bridge, installed in 2015


He was also responsible for the delineation of the sundial in Buncrana, Co. Donegal, Ireland,(picture, left) and for the design and building of the Sustrans sundial on the Witham Cycle path in Lincoln in 1996.
