gritstone. Overall height approximately 3 metres. The square base has
round-arched recess on each side. Clustered Corinthian columns above,

representation of the incident it is said to commemorate. On February 4th
1869 the York and Ainsty Hunt reached the banks of the River Ure which was
swollen after heavy rain. Several members boarded the ferry to east of the
kitchen garden but one of the horses became tangled in the chains on the
side of the ferry, panicked and tipped the boat over. Six men were drowned,
including Sir Charles Slingsby, the heir to the estates in Knaresborough and
Scriven, Captain Henry Vyner and Edmund Robinson - members of the family of
Newby Hall. Clare and Robert Vyner were saved. It was a dramatic event
which had a considerable impact on the history of estates in the area. The
