The Druid's Temple

Take a picnic and enjoy a gentle stroll at the The Druid’s Temple near Ripon.  Will you dare spend the night there?

The Druid's Temple is in fact not a real temple, but a nineteenth century folly. Styled after stone circles and well known prehistoric monuments such as Stonehenge. The Druids Temple was built to alleviate local unemployment, allowing William Danby, a wealthy landowner of the time to pay workers a shilling a day for their labour. At less than 200 years old, it is nonetheless an atmospheric and intriguing location. Despite its origin being common knowledge, myths and rumours of mystic practices have sprung up over its lifetime with tales of Devil worship and harrowing frights experienced by those who have spent the night.
