Conistone


Not far from Kilnsey Crag and across the River Wharfe, the attractive little village of Conistone nestles in the valley bottom. There has obviously been a settlement here for hundreds of years. The tiny church dates back to the 11th or 12th century and I found an old bricked-up doorway in the wall of one house, with a date stone that I think reads 1697.

  2. Now you find yourself wondering why that old doorway is bricked in.

  3. Gee, jennytfreckles, I have been short of time and haven't spent much recent time visiting your blog or others. Glad I didn't skip over the top village scene. Love the red vines creeping up the walls.
