This is another of those wonderful romantic legends of the North Yorkshire Moors. In days of old, fair young maids (and fair young men) used to stand on the wishing stone to make a wish for a handsome marriage partner. Sadly the exact location of the wishing stone has long since faded from memory but while strolling through these woods at East Arncliffe near Danby I stumbled across this overgrown cluster of rocks. There was a special atmosphere about this place that convinced me this could be the spot. Make a wish and see…..!
