Examples of vertical sundials

The hours a vertical sundial can show will depend entirely on the declination of the wall to which you want it attached. We measure this during our site visit - or, where a visit is impractical, we supply a simple kit so you can make the measurement yourself.

Other design factors include the choice of material, scale of the wall, position of windows and any personalised Sundial Furniture such as quotations, dates, name of house and solstice and equinox lines.

The style and material of the gnomon can also be tailored according to the fabric and design of the wall sundial.
