The Druid’s Temple is a folly, situated in the woods adjacent to the Tree Lodges and a very short walk from the Bivouac barn complex and Yurt field.
The public footpath leads from the road to the main site of the folly, and within the woodland there are a number of other standing stones. At a number of points there are stunning views over the Leighton Reservoir, surrounding moorland and Yorkshire Dales landscape.
There are a number of walking trails within the woodland which Swinton Estate allows walkers to use on a permissive use basis, there are no bridleways.
The Temple is one of Yorkshire’s quirkiest follies, enjoying a fabulous location which we at Bivouac take great pleasure in. It is of particular appeal to walkers, families and bird watchers.
