Walking towards Broadgate Farm and Westerdale
Old Ralph's Cross is well away from the busy tarmac ridge road from Castleton to Hutton-le-Hole near where the road comes up from Westerdale.
'New' Ralph's Cross by the busy B road from Castleton to Hutton-le-Hole. Both crosses are about 2.5 miles SSE above Westerdale Village. On the left a car is just waiting on the exit from theroad up from Westerdale
Near Ralph's Cross is a commemorative stone to Frank Elgee (1880-1944) a great pioneer of the archaeology of the North York Moors - his book 'Early Man in North-East Yorkshire' and although outdated in many ways, its is a great read.
