The new sundial has been installed on the side historic Cradley Heath mansion house and the artist has recreated period detail.

Haden Hill House was opened in 1878 but the old hall dates back further. The artist built the sundial at his nearby Mushroom Green workshop.

The Black Country is dotted with Luke Perry sculptures, including the Mary MacArthur Women's Chainmakers Strike sculpture in Cradley Heath. He also recently installed a weathercock on top of St Peter's Church in Cradley.
