The medieval 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.

old Ralph's Cross, North York Moors

 

'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 the road up from Westerdale

new Ralph's Cross, North York Moors

 

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a great pioneer of the archaeology of the North York Moors - his book 'Early Man in North-East Yorkshire' and although outdated in many ways, its is a great read.

? Road just north of Blakey Ridge, made for some industrial activity, probably coal pits?

 

Ralphs Cross, North York Moors National Park, North Yorkshire, England: Ralphs Cross is on the highest point on the moorland road from Castleton to Hutton-le-Hole over Blakey Ridge. There is a car park for a picnic stop, or a walk start, near Ralph's Cross just on the road to Rosedale Abbey. Just out of sight on the western side of the road is the 'Old Ralphs Cross' and just down the Rosedale road on the left is 'Fat Betty' (White Cross), probably a prehistoric standing stone taken over by Christianity.
