SUNDIAL in HOPE CHURCHYARD

Opposite the South church door is a calvary of five octagonal steps with a sundial pillar mounted in an octagon base on top.

The base has a square hole in it which would accommodate the Saxon cross shaft.

It is supposed that it was once mounted on the calvary but this is more typical of a market cross.

St Peter's cross and part of a guidestoop are close by.
