Conistone, Dr Peter Maxted (1918 – 1997) and Joan Maxted (1920 – 2008)

Wharfedale is a beautiful area for walking and in March 2011 I had a beautiful day walking along Malham Moor to Kinsey Crag, then crossing the river Wharfe to Conistone on our way back to Grassington.

In Conistone I spotted this commemorative bench; set in a walled area around the old fingerpost, which shows the grid reference 981 674 and the previous county of Yorkshire West Riding.

I expect the bench was originally erected to commemorate Dr Peter Maxted, following his death in 1997, with the details carved very finely in to the wood of the bench. Ā Joan Maxted is commemorated with the more usual plaque.
