Denny Parish Church Sundial (C3)

The church at Denny was completely rebuilt at the beginning of the nineteenth century and the only known remaining carved stone from the earlier building is a vertical sundial at Hallhouse.  It used to stand on the crowstepped gable of an outbuilding.  As the gable faced south-east the sundial was placed at an angle.  It had evidently previously occupied a position on the south wall of the church and so the radial lines and hour numbers are symmetrically arranged on either side of a vertical slot for the gnomon.  It is dated 1670 and the single rectangular block has chamfered upper corners.
