Greenwich, London, England - 20th July 2013

By: Deborah

At the top of the hill stood the Old Royal Observatory – a very important scientific site founded in 1675. In its grounds is the Meridian Line, from which all time is measured around the world. In 1833, a big red ‘time ball’ was installed on the roof. Arthur was interested to learn that the ball still drops at 1.00 every day, to help people set their clocks and watches correctly. Before leaving, he examined a plaque on one of the outside walls, which shows different British measurements.
