Grange House, Bo’ness Sundial (N1)

This freestanding sundial was reported by Ross who stated that the baluster was ancient, but that the old horizontal dial having become dilapidated, was replaced by Henry Cadell with one of his own design.  The inscription on the side read: “1856/ GRANGE/ DAY UNTO DAY. UTTERETH SPEECH/ AND NIGHT UNTO/ NIGHT SHEWETH/ KNOWLEDGE” and was taken from Psalm 19.2 (Macgibbon & Ross, vol 5, 510).
