Details

This walk, navigated by the use of GPS references will take you on a discovery of 8 Cup & Ring Stones over a wide area of Ilkley Moor. There are over 400 known Cup & Ring Stones on Rombalds Moor which includes Ilkley Moor.

The stones were carved during the Neolithic-Bronze Age period around 4,000 years ago. These designs of cups, rings and lines are intriguing and enigmatic. The reason they were carved is unknown, but they are fascinating.

The walk takes about 2 hours starting and ending at White Wells car park on Ilkley Moor. It is a strenuous walk of 3 miles, with uphill climbing.
