Mass Dials in Cambridgeshire

A list of churches with dedications where known

This list has been prepared by the British Sundial Society. Many of the churches shown have two or more mass dials, usually on south-facing stonework. Sadly, the list is far from definitive and undoubtedly contains errors. The Society would much appreciate hearing about the current state of all mass dials in Cambridgeshire and welcomes corrections to spellings and dedications and to any other errors noted.
