Woofa Bank is an area to the northeast
of Ilkley Moor and to the southeast of Green
Crag Slack that has the remains of a prehistoric enclosure system on its gently
north facing slope as well about a dozen cup
marked and carved
rocks. The enclosure is roughly oval and measures about 80 metres by 50 metres
with the low walls consisting of earth and rubble as well as some larger stones
which can be best seen to the north and west - although the structure is thought
to date to the Bronze
Age it is possible that this area was in use from as early as the Mesolithic
Small cup marks on one of the enclosure stones.
