Boroughbridge
North Yorkshire
Once on the Great North Road running from London to Edinburgh it was busy with staging coaches changing horses and travellers staying overnight at one of the 22 pubs that were once in the village. It grew as a transport hub as the River Ure was bridged here (and a battle took place here in 1322), although since 1963, when the A1 by-pass was built, it has now become a quiet village and its sense of history can be appreciated. Standing in fields just south of the village are the Devil’s Arrows, three standing stones, with one standing over 20ft high, said to have been thrown by the Devil 4,000 years ago!
