Twelve Apostles

At first glance an impressive prehistoric stone circle on Ilkley Moor but delving into its history more it turns out that it is regarded as one of the most damaged sites in West Yorkshire. It is suffering from severe erosion from the number of visitors, the inner cairn and earthbank almost flattened, it probably had twenty stones instead of the current twelve and these have been re-erected unofficially so may not be in the original position and alignment.
