Burnsall is in Wharfedale, south of Grassington and is an attractive village with a fine pub and tea room and a beautiful field for picnics by the river.
Set with a beautiful view over the river is this commemorative bench to Eric Lodge. The inscription on the plaque is a valiant attempt to sum up the life of clearly a very active man and reads:
Countryman, resident of Burnsall, lover of the Yorkshire Dales and lifelong member of the Ramblers Association’.
This Eric Lodge may be the same man who wrote, ‘A Wharfedale Village: A detailed study of the History of Burnsall and Thorpe-sub-Montem’
