Devil's Arrow, Boroughbridge
Devil's Arrow, Boroughbridge
The most southerly of the three surviving monoliths that date from either the late Neolithic or Bronze Age. The sandstone monoliths are up to 7m in height, with another 1.5 - 2m below the surface. They were somehow transported here from Plompton [SE3553], which is south of Knaresborough and across the River Nidd. The Devil's Arrows are thought to be part of a much larger series of henges etc that stretch NNW from here across Hutton Moor towards the Thornborough group. [SE2879]
