This year marks the 200th anniversary of the rebuilding of the old St Stephen’s Church in Fylingdales. To celebrate this historic event, a large painted sundial, created by local craftsmen, was erected on the porch of the church.

Old photographs of the church taken during the last century clearly show that there was a door in the porch of the church and a large wooden sundial fixed above the entrance.

The sundial was almost a square meter, painted white with black lettering.

It disappeared in the 1980s around the time the church was taken over by the Redundant Churches Fund, now the Churches Conservation Trust.

A church spokesperson said: ‘About 50 people gathered in the Old Church on Saturday June 25 to attend the official unveiling ceremony of Sir Frederick Strickland-Constable, Lord of Fyling Manor.

“The Fylingdales Folk Choir performed several songs, enhanced by the wonderful acoustics of the building, a poem and sonnet were read and the old organ was played. Refreshments were enjoyed at the end of a historic day.

The first sundial displayed the dates 1736 and 1864 as well as various initials. Later these were repositioned and the year 1919 and the initials GW and JWB were added.
