The sundial is on the gable end of the building shown in ST9519 : Cuttice Lodge, Rushmoor Park

Sundials or sun clocks are considered to be the oldest known device for the measurement of time and one of the most ancient scientific instruments.
The oldest known true sundial was built around 1500BC in Egypt. Shaped like a letter 'L' the length of the shadow cast by the vertical leg along the horizontal leg indicated the time. The Romans perfected the horizontal sundial we know today and invented portable travelling versions.
