HISTORY OF THE PROPERTY Wesley House was a working Wesleyan Methodist Chapel from 1837 until it closed down in the early 1980's. The sundial was made by John Smith (born 1807), a local inventor, preacher and the son of a farmer in Bielby who had a strong inclination to study astronomy and dialling. When he was 18 he completed a wooden sundial which indicated the time both in England and New York. This was fastened to a pillar in his father's garden, and showed the time either by sun, moon or stars and was called an astronomical clock. John Smith presented to the trustees a vertical south declining sun-dial, engraven on stone. It was specially made to suit the aspect of the building and was erected on the front of Bielby Chapel, where it can still be seen.
