News at Eleven: The Stanza Stones project is a collaboration

between renowned local poet Simon Armitage, artist Pip Hall and the Ilkley Literature festival.

The Trail itself features six new poems by Simon Armitage which have been carved into rock by Pip Hall in what have been descriibed as 'six atmospheric locations'. The problem is, that for many rock climbers the moody gritstone edges represent an almost sacred altar of movement.
