The Wheeldale Stones

Standing Stones


The roman road known as Wades Causeway was supposed to have been built by the local giant Wade. He built the road so that his wife, Bell, could cross the swampy moors to milk her giant cow.
Bell carried the cobbles and shingles used for the road in her giant apron. Occasionally Bell's apron would slip, dropping piles of stones around the moors (the barrows and standing stones of the moors).
