This 1980 picture compared with the 2009 picture confirms deterioration of their condition. See comments on them which have been passed to the Burley Parish Council.

This picture shows work being undertaken by the then Ilkley UDC to improve The Stones. This was halted by an injunction at the instigation of Fisons Mill (now long closed). We urgently need pictures of what The Stones looked like after they were returned to their previous condition in about 1950.
