High Bridestones, Sleights Moor, Coast to Coast

The High Bridestones are found on the Coast to Coast path on Sleights Moor, two miles east of Grosmont. They are easily visible from the path, about 200 yards further up from the Low Bride Stones. The stones date from the Bronze Age. Many have now fallen, but there are still several standing proud above the heath. They are thought to have once formed two separate "four-poster" stone circles.

This part of Sleights Moor is a limestone pavement. The stones stand much higher than the Low Bridestones, as their name implies. The High Bridesttones are a scheduled monument and are stirring to gaze upon, more so than any other standing stones in the North Yorks Moors.
