The Stanza Stones route runs along the Pennine Watershed from Ilkley to Marsden and features six new poems by British poet Simon Armitage, in a bid to create a permanent legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Mr Armitage’s six poems have been carved into stones on moorland and uplands between the two towns and are named after water in different forms – beck, puddle, mist, rain, dew, snow.A seventh, and final stone has yet to be placed on a secret landscape to encourage walkers to discover it naturally.
