Markenfield Hall is one of England’s finest surviving 14th Century country houses, and is located 3 miles south of Ripon. We will meet at the Reading Room car park at 10.30am or directly at the West Gate Car Park (free to NT and non-NT members) at Fountains Abbey at 12 noon for our walk to Markenfield Hall by about 1.30pm. Bring a packed lunch. We aim to have tea at the Fountains Abbey main visitor’s centre at about 4pm. Please let David know on 488674 if you need a lift from Dunnington.
