Camping at Dobrudden was a great experience. Within half an hour of rolling out of bed each morning, I was out walking the dogs and searching for rock art. Most of the photos I've uploaded are from the ridge on which the campsite/caravan park sits, but from what I see here, I've missed quite a few. More carved rocks and a possible stone circle are on the next ridge down near the curve in the Brackenhall Road.

I also found a faint, vaguely circular enclosure to the east of the caravan park.

Also worth noting is the livestock on the campsite. Turkeys, geese, chickens and peacocks! Watch out when you're reversing!

Baildon Moor is Ilkley Moor’s little sister, a few miles to the south it is both smaller and flatter which certainly makes it easier on the legs. For some reason it seems particularly popular with weekenders out for a stroll and folk walking dogs, but there are around 40 or so marked rocks here, with two third of them north/north-east of Dobrudden Farm caravan park although two of the best examples are to the east and the south of the park.
There are also said to be the remains at least 2 stone circles – one at Windy Hill and one north of the road at Pennythorne Hill but don’t expect to see much, if anything. There are also several badly damaged cairns, a destroyed Bronze Age field system, and quite a few recent bell pits.
Parking is easy at a free carpark north of Bingley Road where there are the remains of ‘Coll’s Burial Mound’ ring cairn, from here walk a short distance west to a track that leads uphill and south to Dobrudden Farm. Many of the stones lie close to this track. In Dyers ‘Discovering Prehistoric England’ he mentions 4 prominent stones and I’ve added these as separate sites and used his numbering system as an aid for those who have the book.
