Long Description:
A wall mounted dial plate above the south porch doorway.

"The dial, which is high on the South porch gable, is shaded by trees.
Numerals possibly Roman but not now decipherable. Shows 6am to 6pm in half hours. Strip gnomon in open triangular shape – very rusty with some metal loss. Semicircle around gnomon root and a curious horizontal line below it."

"The date of the original building of the church is uncertain but the first Rector to be recorded was Walter Chaundos in 1333 under the patronage of John Le Moigne.

Despite being inland, the smugglers of long ago used Owermoigne as a convenient storage place. They hid their contraband in the church tower."
