An amazing folly, looks as ancient as Stone henge but in reality is much more modern. This stone circle and surrounding rock piles & monoliths is beautiful, set in a wood overlooking Leyburn reservoir its not easy to find but a real treasure for those who make the effort.
On the day we visited we had to wait quite some time for a large group of people who had decided to picnic there ( yes right in the middle, screaming kids and all!!!). Once they had gone however you could easily imagine whatever your mind conjured up for this evocative setting. It's worth waiting for some quiet time without the crowds to get the full benefit.
Once quiet it really did "feel" old and atmospheric, there's even a small cavern and a stone table & chairs. look out for the various guardian rocks and mini constructions which surround the main temple, some are more difficult to find than others but all within a few hundred meters.
Great job, we live over 350 miles away but I think we will be visiting again when we are back up north.
Oh and check out the Bivouak café about half a mile away (reviewed separately)
