Workshop: Writing Across The Meridian Line

Bromley House Library is home to both the archives of the British Sundial Society and one of very few surviving brass Meridian Lines, created to establish precise time-keeping for the city.
Participants will explore time as a subject and feature in poetry, from the linear measurements of Meridian Lines to the endless cosmic nights of Polynesian creation mythology and the seasonal cycles of pre-industrial English folk songs.
