Blakey Ridge Handstone


" On the 11th October 1711, the justices of the peace sitting at Northallerton ordered that guide posts be erected at all cross roads; stone is much more easily obtained on the moors, so as a result a number of 'handstones' - the way indicated by a roughly carved human hand, were erected."
