Dandelion Stone Troughs and Architctural Antiques


DAN 4067

Hewn from Yorkshire Gritstone, this large, stunningly attractive trough is probably 200 to 300 years old, and was recently unearthed from an ancient meadow during excavations for a cattle shed. It is thought the trough was probably carved out of a huge block of Gritstone up in the long-abandoned stone quarry on Earls Crag, Cowling in the Pennines. Hereabouts, huge troughs such as this are known as ‘Wells’, and informer times were used as drinking troughs for cattle and horses.

This Gritstone trough is of exceptional length, thus is an extremely rare survivor.

Dimensions: 99” long x 33” maximum width x 18” maximum height,   9½” internal depth.  (2510 x 840 x 460 x 240).   Average wall thickness  5½”  (140mm)
