NZ5800 : 2 Mornington Villas

near to Urra, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

2 Mornington Villas
2 Mornington Villas
This isolated rock outcrop in upper Tripsdale has a well made plaque fixed in a recess which says "Arthur J Browne, Private, 2 Mornington Villas". Someone's hideaway.

I have since been informed that Mornington Villas is in Bradford a city once associated with A J Browne. A J Browne is famous for his walking books on Yorkshire and was also in the wool trade. In later years he and his wife ran a hotel in Goathland and he is buried in Sleights churchyard. My correspondant surmises the plaque came originally from A J Brownes house in Bradford and may have been placed on this crag in his memory by Tom Scott Burns also a local writer of walking books.
