View from Burn Bridge looking towards Brayton Barff
Brayton Barff and Hambleton Hagg are two isolated hills in an otherwise flat landscape. Legend has it that there were two witches who disliked each other. Eventually they started throwing mud at each other resulting in the formation of the two hills. As they were deemed to be cursed, they were never developed for agriculture and remain wooded to this day. More prosaically they are outcrops of Bunter sandstone which would be relatively infertile and not worth developing in relation to the rich alluvial plains which surround them.
