Sundial - inside red circle - at St Beuno's Church Clynnog Fawr

This sundial is one of only two Irish-style sundials in Wales (the other being at Twywn). It probably dates to the 10th or 11th century. It was for many years used as a footbridge across the Glan-Mor mill stream at Aberdesach. It was returned to Clynnog Fawr churchyard in 1930. The semi-circular face is etched with five lines, dividing the semicircle into four segments.
