Articlave Sundial

Map Reference: C784338 (2784, 4338)

In the south wall of St Paul's Church, Articlave, is a very fine sundial. It is a rectangular piece of slate with a bronze gnomon. At the top two globes flank an hourglass. Beneath these is the inscription:

Tis greatly wise to talk with our past hours
And ask them what report they bore to heaven

Large Roman numerals flank the gnomon, beneath which is the date AD 1823.
