Sixes and Sevens

Seven dials in Covent Garden is the area where seven roads all converge to a circle with a giant sun dial pillar in the centre.  However the sun dial only has six faces.  Apparently the original plan was for six roads.  There was a late alteration to the roading plan.

Six or seven, it doesn't matter, it's still a great place to find trendy shops and bars.

I lived in London in the 1970s and of course loved Covent Garden. But my mind must be going to slush since I don't remember the pillar. Was it built as a WW1 memorial?
