Bronze Age Round Cairn
Ilkley Moor, West Yorkshire OS Map Ref SE138452
OS Maps - Landranger 104 (Leeds & Bradford), Explorer 297 (Lower Wharfedale & Washburn Valley)
a nice Round Cairn
that is a fair size and still in reasonable condition despite having
the centre dug out, leaving it looking like the crater of a dormant
volcano. It is certainly better preserved than its larger namesake the
Great Skirtful of Stones.
Finding it is a bit tricky, travel southeast from the Cow and Calf car
park and take the path that follows the edge of Green Crag Slack for
about a mile. To your right you should be able to see a shed on the
crest of the hill about half a mile away and halfway between you and
it should be the pile of boulders of the cairn.
