Yorke's folly, Nidderdale, West Yorkshire, England
Yorke's Folly dominates the skyline as you look towards Greenhow from Bewerley. Built as a grand folly in the late 18th century, the three towers were created to look like the ruin of an east window or church crossing. It was said to have been built when work was scarce in the district. It is now locally known as 'Two Stoops' because one of the shafts was blown down in a storm in 1893.
