St Michael's Church in Edstone (or Great Edstone) is located on the edge of a hill overlooking the Ings and the Hambleton Hills The church is Saxon in origin, and it is well known for its late Saxon sundial situated above the door. It is very similar to the Saxon sundial at St Gregory's Minster. The sundial reads (left) LOTHAN ME WROHTE ('Lothan made me'), and above the sundial is the Latin inscription OROLGIUM VIATORUM ('The Wayfarers' Clock'). The church also preserves a Norman font. The church was rebuilt in the thirteenth century.
