DEVIL’S ARROWS

DEVIL’S ARROWS

Three huge, mysterious, stones, of no obvious purpose, thought to have been erected c2,000BC. It is thought they came from Plumpton Rocks, about 9 miles to the south and that there were originally at least 5 stones in total. The Devil is said to have thrown the 'arrows' - which have other names, including 'the Three Sisters'. One can be found behind fencing on the south side of Roecliffe Lane, the other two in a field opposite, close to Boroughbridge Marina.
