Memorial sundial, Teigh
Erected in 2014 to commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World War. Teigh was one of the Thankful Villages where all the members of the armed forces from the village survived. The list of these is taken from a list displayed in the church which also notes where they served. On the top is a small sundial LinkExternal link
Thankful Villages
There are, it is thought, 52 so-called Thankful Villages (also sometimes called "Blessed Villages") in England and Wales. These villages get this epithet from the fact that they were fortunate enough to see the safe return home of all their men and women who went to war in the Great War of 1914-18
Somerset is clearly the most blessed county in this context, having nine such villages.
