The Conistone Moor trig point is situated on the edge of the moor of the same name at a spot called Capplestone Gate. It was built in 1951 as one of the third order of trig points.

The trig point sits on a small gritstone shelf overlooking the limestone pastures above Conistone, indeed the transition from limestone to gritstone scenery is quite obvious.
The Conistone Moor trig point can be reached via an enjoyable climb via Gurling Trough, Conistone Dib and the old track known as the Conistone Turf Road.
It is one of my favourite non-summit trig points in the Yorkshire Dales with extensive views of the hills and moors above Wharfedale and Littondale.
