Sundial 50 metres east of Church of Holy Rood, Church Lane, Ossington - Newark and Sherwood

An early C17 sundial. Tuscan column with chamfered square base and four dials. It stands in a wooded churchyard in what was previously the gardens of nearby Ossington Hall, now demolished. The stones forming the stepped base have slipped and open joints will allow rainwater to penetrate. The stone column and cubic top has lost some detail and there are localised areas of decay.
