Although visible from perimeter fence, you will have pay an entrance fee to get close.

Walk west from front of house garden, through the Kissing Gate into wild flower meadow, beyond the labyrinth, is the slate sundial. Five feet in diameter and weighing nearly a tonne, this shallow blue-grey Lakeland Slate bowl was designed by Sir Mark Lennox-Boyd, of the British Sundial Society, and emulates the earliest known sundial invented some 2300 years ago. Around the rim is information to correct the displayed time for month.

Mounted on large slab of slate in grassy meadow.
