3/20 Sundial 10m in front of
Shell Cottage at Adlington


Sundial: probably early C18 for John Legh and moved in mid C18. Buff
sandstone. Square base has a crude, low domed top with carries a
barrel shaped pillar with a bead mould at the top. This has an
octagonal copper plate (becoming worn) and a pierced triangular
gnomon. The plate has Roman numerals, records the longitude of
Adlington and has John Legh's initials.
It is thought that the pillar is a Saxon cross base and another was
moved from here to the Mount in Prestbury (q.v.).
