Link to Archaeology Data Service:


Stone cattle trough of probable 19th century date fed by a natural stream. Inscribed with the following Latin text “DE TORRENTE IN VIA BIBET PROPTERRA EXALTABIT CAPUT”. This comes from the Bible, Psalm 110 verse 7. It translates as “ He shall drink of the brook in the way; therefore shall he lift up the head”. It seems to have been installed after the building of the present Hartlington Hall in 1894. Its owner, Henry Dawson was a strong Anglo-Catholic.

About half a mile east of Burnsall, on roadside adjacent to Hartlington Hall boundary wall between Wharfe House Farm and Spout House. On north side of road.
