See the real moondial

The moondial at Belton House, Lincolnshire

Belton, in Lincolnshire, was the setting for Helen Cresswell’s children’s novel and TV series Moondial.

You can see the moondial, which will be working as a sun dial if you visit on a fine day, in the garden.

The garden at Belton is also a great place for the kids to get stuck into our list of 50 things to do before you’re 11 3/4. They could start by building a den, going on a scavenger hunt or climbing a tree.
