Places of Interest

There are so many interesting sites throughout this District – monoliths, mounds, turf mazes, stone circles, springs, wells and numerous natural features worthy of a visit – it has been difficult to select just three.

Blakey Topping – a mound on the Yorkshire Wolds

The Devil’s Arrows, large standing stones next to the A1 at Boroughbridge, North Yorkshire.

Ilkley & Rombalds Moor in West Yorkshire – the Twelve Apostles (previously known as the Druidical Dial) stone circle, plus many carved stones eg Badger, Swastika.

Details of the above – and many more – can be found in Julian Cope’s “Modern Antiquarian”.
