The Devil's Arrows

Standing Stones


At Rudston and Boroughbridge, in Yorkshire, are supposed examples of maenhirs. Near the latter place there are four standing in a row, which are called by the country people the Devil's Bolts; but, from their relative position, it is not unlikely that they are the remains of a large circle.
