Description

This remarkable place was actually constructed in Victorian times by the workers of a rich industrialist who lived in the area. In the 1820s William Danby, squire of Swinton, near Masham, found a reason for building a temple. His aim was to provide work for local folk during a time of severe unemployment and he paid them 'a shilling a day' to build a replica of Stonehenge - known as 'Druids' Temple. As well as the upright stones and linking cross-stones, it has two outer guards, two inner guards, a sacrificial altar, phallus, two guards of the solar temple and a tomb - and just about every other fanciful touch you can think of. Situated among woodland near Masham, this curious set of stones is generally seen as the best druidical folly in the country. This HDR merged image was taken very early on a summer morning, just after sun rise and overnight rain. ProPhoto RGB profile for maximum color fidelity and gamut.
