The Devil's Arrow are three free standing rocks. One is on the side of the road and might be tricky to spot if you are driving. The other two are in a field off of a private road, across the street. Parking is a bit...More

The 3 Standing Stones are in open countryside and are seen clearly from the main road which bisects one stone from the other two. There is an explanatory plaque in front of the single stone. Apparently there would have been a fourth stone (now part...More

It was great to see the arrows from so many years ago. Right on the outskirts of the village. Could view one which was behind a gate, and the other two in the farmers field. These were inaccessible so rather spoilt the experience.

Far more publicity should be given to these fascinating Monoliths. Just as interesting as Stonehenge, just on a smaller scale.

Beautiful majestic monoliths. Part of the Prehistoric landscape of North Yorkshire. Not easy to find or park near but well worth seeing. It would be good if in the future the council considers putting a small parking area near by and some a literature board...More

Worth a visit, but as two are in a farmers field, wear appropriate shoes as it's not easy to walk across that field due to crops. Trainers, or even better, walking boots, are advised. It's a shame there isn't more information about them, although there...More

I had read about the Devil's Arrows, 3 large gritstone monolith standing stones, in the Yorkshire Rough Guide. It was only by chance that we came across them as we were leaving Boroughbridge, heading for Roecliffe. They were glimpsed standing in the middle of a...More
