Fat Betty
There are two legends as to how Fat Betty got her name. The first is that she takes her name from a Cistercian nun, Sister Elizabeth from the Priory at Rosedale. These nuns wore gowns of undyed wool and were often called 'White Ladies'. Another tale is that a local farmer and his wife, Fat Betty travelling home on a dark foggy night met with an accident and fat Betty fell from the back of the cart. When he arrived home and noticed her missing, he retraced his route across the moor and all he could find was the large squat stone.
