Druid Temple & Brimham Rocks

Druids Temple

Druids TempleThe Druids Temple is near Ilton in North Yorkshire.

The temple is a folly created by William Danby of nearby Swinton Hall in 1820. Danby created the temple to generate work for the local population who were paid 1 shilling a day. A salary was offered for someone to live at the Temple as a hermit for seven years; legend suggests that someone stayed for five years before going mad. The temple sits in a private forest – entry is free.
