Full description

Crowley, J., 1957, Sundials in North Devon, 181-2 (Article in Serial). SDV273904.

The figures face inwards on a round dial, the I's being on the wrong side of the V's, and on the west side a small V is inside a larger one, the outer line doing duty as the following I. This makes the VI look like a V, the VII like a VI, and the VIII appears to be missing altogether. The same peculiarity appears at Bittadon. Signed by John Berry in collaboration with his son Thomas. Dated 1795.
