18/87 Sundial to south of Millrigg


Sundial, dated 1846, by Richard Melville of Glasgow. Pillar support has acanthus-
leaf decoration to base and capital; square, moulded abacus has inset slate on top
with one main dial and 4 subsidiary dials, one in each corner. These smaller dials
are labelled morning, afternoon, evening, and night (the latter two have lost their
gnomons); the main dial bears the maker's name and a badly weathered inscription.
This sundial replaced the one given to Acorn Bank, Temple Sowerby, which formerly
stood at Millrigg.
