Previous Comments:

The ‘new’ Long Stoop was put in place in 1836. The previous one had been damaged. There was a ceremony on the 8th August 1836, which John Yeadon (1764- 1843) attended. He kept a diary. This is part of the entry for that day. “The old Conelodge stone Stoop being destroyed sometime back by deprecators, which has stood hundreds of years. A new one was set up this day with music and rejoicing”. Each time I visit Yeadon I make a point of driving by, and remember this diary entry.
