Seaton Ross, East Yorkshire

In Seaton Ross, 6 miles west of Market Weighton, a sundial enthusiast, William Watson (1784?-1857) erected a huge sundial, 12 foot in diameter, on the front of a cottage [Hogg]. His epitaph in the local churchyard is:
At this church I so often
With pleasure die call
That I made a sundial
Upon the church wall
