Cast Stone Sundials

View Info

In the digital age, sundials would appear to be highly anachronistic. Perhaps so for measuring the time, but as a garden ornament they still have a fascinating attraction for many people. They are a focal point and are bound to be a conversation piece. The ancient Egyptians were the first people to measure time by using a sundial. A simple idea that that relies on a shadow thrown by the sun as it travels through the sky. The renaissance heralded a plethora of new designs and this is reflected in the cast stone sundials that Haddonstone offer - classical, traditional and contemporary versions of this timeless artifact together with a range of plinths that are available separately.
