One of Abbey England’s more unusual product lines are our sundials, which can be a wonderful addition to a garden. They continue to be a popular focal point for gardeners when setting out their outdoor spaces, and we have a wide selection of designs to choose from on our website. Sundials, either functional or ornamental, have been part of history since the beginning of time. A sundial indicates time by using a light spot or a shadow cast by the position of the Sun. Worldwide, sundials have been invented independently in every major culture, with each having their own version of the device. Their development is often linked to countries that enjoyed a lot of sunshine.
