Black plaque № 7589 in Salisbury

An important timely point of interest to the passer-by...
In the year of our Lord 1752, the Reformation of the
Calendar took place - see the Wall Dial above dated
1749. This Julian calendar made the year too short,
thus the accumulated error amounted to eleven days.
England adopted the Gregorian or Reformed Calendar,
so the next day after Sept. 2nd 1752 became Sept 14th 1752.
