A to Z Challenge – travels round Leicester with my camera No 26.

I could have started the A-Z Challenge with this one, since it’s an astronomical clock but then what would I have have done for Z? It’s to be found on the outside of the Rattray Lecture Theatre at Leicester University. Designed and constructed by Allan Mills and Ralph Jefferson, it was installed in 1989.

The clock shows the relative positions of the sun, moon and stars on a medieval geocentric system with the earth at the centre.

And with that it is time to sign off from the A-Z Challenge. Well done to everyone who has seen the month through from beginning to end.


  1. Well done on completing the challenge, Sally :) x

  2. I've been fascinated seeing all that Leicester has to offer in archtectural detail, Sally, and your added info has made it all the more enjoyable. Well done on completing the challenge, too.

    Thanks for taking us around your world.
