Garden Sundials

Ideal for Gardens, Patios & Conservatories
Sundials are perfect for adding a point of interest and make attractive ornamental features and sculptures in gardens, parks, woodland, landscaped areas, patios, greenhouses, conservatories or any private or public space

Exclusive Sundial Designs

The sundials you find on this website are my own creation, and you are unlikely to find them elsewhere.  They are all made in my workshop at Tolleshunt Major, Essex in the UK.

Personal Motto Inscription makes the Perfect Gift!
