My own sundial, made by Keith Bunting of Merlin Sundials, Bristol.


The plinth was separately sourced,  but my wife is not keen on the colour of the stone, hence my attempt to cover it in ivy!

Some other Sundial Websites - great detail all about sundials - Sundials on the Internet - British Sundial Society - Mike Shaw’s Pilkington Gibbs Heliochronometer website  a great website for all things sundial—suggested by Tabor Johnson






Sundial Designer and Maker  - Alastair Hunter of Edinburgh

To give me something to do when the sun isn’t shining, I am a member of the Cloud Appreciation Society.   My photograph alongside of altocumulus undulatus clouds taken from my garden was included in the Society’s international cloud calendar for 2009.
