Our House in Jemimaville has carvings on the stonework done by Hugh Miller. I grew up in that house but I saw that it was in a sad state of dereliction on my last visit to the area in 1987. But I believe that it has now been rescued and will be totally refurbished. I will be very pleased to learn how it looks when complete. It should be allowed to come alive again.

Sundial shows some fine detailed carving, can Mr Newman confirm whether it was carved from one slab of stone, or 6/7 individual sections using dowels?

Hello everyone! I am looking for pictures of a sundial that Hugh Miller had dug up in the beginning of 19th century and that had ended up in the yard of the Albion House in 1980's.
I am an archaeologist from Finland doing research on sundials and I would appreciate if some one over there would be able to snap pictures for me of the sundial. It is of lectern type and has a four pointed star on it. It was at first next to this dial at Hugh Miller's house but later on dissappered. Then in 1985 it was reported to be in the yard of the Albion House, whether it is still there is a mystery! And if it is I sure would like some pictures of it. Especially I would like closeups on the numbers or other features on the dial, so I could evaluate the age of it!
Any information on the dial would be appreciated!
