Blakey Topping (Stone Circle) — Folklore

Adding to what Fitzcoraldo said, another legend has it that the Hole of Horcum was made by the local giant, Wade. He was having a row with his wife, Bell, and got so angry that he scooped out a lump of earth and chucked it at her. The Hole of Horcum is the dip left where he scooped out the earth, and Blakey topping, the clod itself, resting in situ where it landed.
