In the garden of the Mansion House there is a sundial. It stands in front of a stone bench which is inscribed 'REST AND BE THANKFUL'. The sundial is inscribed 'WILLIAM ELLISON ESQ. MAY 1711. RALPH REED ESQ. SHERIFFE'. The sundial is from the Old Mansion House on The Close. It was probably moved to its present position in 1954.
