A curiosity of a Yorkshire Dales Old York Stone Meadow Trough displaying many attractive mason’s tooling marks. In the gloriously beautiful Yorkshire Dales, and particularly in Airedale, Wharfedale and Ribblesdale locally made large troughs, hewn from Ice Age Boulders or from bedrock quarried on the fells were known as “ Wells “, and were sited in the meadows close by a natural spring for cattle and oxen. This trough was salvaged from an historic Wharfedale Farm.
It would make a superb centre-piece for a lawn or flagged court yard.
