Nine Standards Rigg

  • Description

    Nine large stone pillars which stand mysteriously above Kirkby Stephen. No clear age or purpose. Some say they mark the Pennines ridge which separates the rivers that flow east vs west. Some think they were erected to intimidate invaders to thinking there was a massed army on the ridge. I think they were a multigenerational prank. In looking at the detail, some are built better than the others.
