SU8586 : Horas non numero nisi serenas: sundial at Dial House, the Causeway

Horas non numero nisi serenas: sundial at Dial House, the Causeway
Horas non numero nisi serenas: sundial at Dial House, the Causeway
This sundial has survived as part of an old gateway. The house to which it once belonged has gone, its place being taken by a later building.

The motto at the top is 'Ne quid pereat', which (I reckon) means 'May nothing perish'. The wording at the bottom apologises (as is the custom) for the sundial's limitations: 'I tell none but the cloudless hours'. (My own free translation, supposing it's okay to render 'serenas' as 'cloudless').
