From the top of Ilkley Road and onto Burley Moor via the 12 apostles. Apparently they're the most badly damaged prehistoric site. Very good paths between, although Burley Moor is easily missed. It is within view of the shed and is to the right of occupation road on the descent. Could easily be done in half an hour.Nicky C05/04/2021
