The Devil's Arrows

Standing Stones


This is the megalithic section of the Ure Swale Landscape, this bit was built by folk from the moors, 'stone people' as their contribution the sacred landscape...
"we'll 'ave nun o' yer fangled swaimish henges,
Tell ye what tho' I can get thee some reet lovely geet big stanes.
Did thee see that job I did at Rudston?"

For me these rude fellas are a gatepost to the North Yorks moors. They stand beside the 'Great North Road' and beside the two main routes onto the moorland plateau.

I think I may have cup-mark fever, is it me or..........

No rampant badgers today, But the new housing developments seem to be gradually stalking the site!
