After visiting Druids Temple for over 30 years (I live only 3 miles away), today was sadly my last ever visit, not because I don't love it there, because I do. No, it's because the land owners have turned it from a beautiful local beauty spot into a money making scheme for townies and tourists. For years, visitors to the area could park at the entrance to the woods which is a short walk to the actual folly, but now it's a case of parking down the lane and paying for the privilege before having to walk 5 times further to see the stones. Today I took an Italian friend of mine to see Druids Temple on his first visit to Yorkshire. As he is registered disabled we parked in the (empty) car parking area closest to the temple, to be told impolitely by an employee to move away from there and relocate to the official car park. As a local, I am utterly disappointed and saddened that making money from tourists has taken precedence over looking after the people who have enjoyed the temple on their doorsteps for decades. Such a shame the locals are being made to pay to take visitors to the area, when surely we're acting as ambassadors?

A great little hidden gem. Interesting history around the construction of this folly. Easy walking on well maintained footpaths with nice woodland walks and great vistas.

Thus is actually a relatively modern folly, but is brilliant nonetheless. Apart from the main circle thetes a cave and other stone structures in a woodland area. Be aware that the roads to get here are not great, nor is the parking. Well worth the effort though.

An interesting landmark, great for kids, family’s and couples. There are loads of trails and climbs to explore! Parking is available for £3, make sure you have change as it’s a envelop and box payment system.

A great place to spend an hour or so. Free entry, just £3 to park. It was a nice walk up to the stones along the edge of the line forest. Alternatively there were cycle tracks for bikes. The stones were intriguing and impressive. There were signs posted around saying no climbing on the stones but quite a few children were climbing all over the rocks (some of which were quite high), whilst their parents sat on the grass oblivious. If you continue along the path from the stones, you come to an absolutely breathtaking view. It was so quiet and peaceful. Well worth a visit.
