The Druids Temple at Ilton, Yorkshire, about 4 miles west of Masham is a folly created by William Danby (1752-1832) of nearby Swinton Hall in 1820. The structure sits deep within a private forest and includes a large stone table, a sheltered cave and an altar stone. He created the temple to generate work for the local population. A salary was offered for someone to live at the Temple as a hermit for seven years.
