Just outside the town, they form some of the earliest evidence of occupation in the area and may date back 4000 years to early Bronze age man – these three standing stones were probably once part of a 5 stone row, the materials for which were dragged from Plompton Rocks about 9 miles away – quite a feat given that the lightest stone weighs some 25 tons.
What their purpose is, and who placed them and when, have been for hundreds of years – and are still today – matters of conjecture.
Local legend however, tells a story how the Devil aimed to throw them at the neighbouring village of Aldborough in a fit of rage, but missed and they landed instead in Boroughbridge.
