Other nearby sites of historic interest
No other important military sites have been identified. Normally we have not identified non military sites but, given their importance and impressive survival there are two monuments in close proximity that are recommended:
Devil’s Arrows: signed from the Weatherby Road leading south from Boroughbridge, along the road to Roecliffe. Two of these massive prehistoric standing stones lie in the field on the north side of the road and one immediately on the south side of the road, just before it drops down to the A1 junction. Parking is possible here but it is a dangerous location as it is on the crest of a hill.
Aldborough Roman Town: There is a small museum and access to Roman remains. A sign to the museum lies immediately adjacent to the battle monument in the centre of Aldborough.
