8/13 Yorke's Folly
Folly or landmark. Late C18 - early C19. For a member of the Yorke family.
Gritstone and ashlar. 2 shafts built to look like the ruin of an east
window or church crossing, with springers for arches and deeply-chamfered
quoins. Each shaft L-shaped on plan and approximately 15 metres high.
Originally a structure of 3 columns know as 'Three Stoups', one was blown
down in 1893. They were said to have been built when work was scarce in the
district and to have been a landmark 'for many generations' in 1894
(Speight). The Yorkes built the new hall at Bewerley in 1815-20 and it is
likely that this landmark was erected as part of the landscaping of the area
at that time. H Speight, Nidderdale, 1894, p 457.
