On our October trip south we visited Fountains Abbey the same day we later took in Ripon. Photos of the Abbey will follow.
In the same grounds as Fountains Abbey, Fountains Hall houses an exhibition dedicated to the life of Octavia Hill, founder of the National Trust.
On entry to the Hall and ascending the stairs you can turn back to view a memorial to the brother and sister Elizabeth Vyner and Charles de Gray Vyner, last scions of the family who owned the Hall in the 1940s. Both died on active service in World War 2.
This is the wording inscribed below the memorial.
