DEVIL’S ARROWS

The Devil's Arrows are three huge, mysterious, stones near Borough bridge.  They are of no obvious purpose and thought to have been erected c2,000BC. It is believed 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.
