Stone handaxe
THIS small handaxe is one of the most beautiful in the British Museum. It is made from quartz with attractive amethyst banding, a difficult material from which to make tools because it is extremely hard. The toolmaker would have had to hit with considerable force and accuracy to remove flakes. Such a high degree of difficulty makes the thin, symmetrical shape of this piece a masterpiece of the toolmakers’ art.

Knight Stainforth Hall, Little Stainforth, Settle, North YorkshireKnight Stainforth is what you could call a 'comfy' site. It's been going for over eight decades, which gives an idea of both its popularity and its owners' ability to know a thing or two about how camping should be done. The route to the site - all grassy slopes dissected with stone walls and dotted with deserted stone barns - gets you in the mood for the rural experience to come. Many use the site as a jump-off point for the Pennine Way, Cycleway, and Bridleway, and the surrounding countryside is peppered with many a foss and force.

Bordering the site's edge is Stainforth lone, complete with its aw 11 fairy-tale packhorse bridge.just one of the many local features that will charm you during your stay. The site itself is a highly agreeable place; spread across two large, flat, manicured fields, it's surrounded by trees and hills, and offers decent-sized pitches that can house even supersize tents. There are a few caravans here, but they're placed in a separate area. And there's a high-end amenities block, fantastic info booth, and extensively stocked onsite shop selling maps, food, and ale (as well as locally raised beef).A comfortable site indeed...

COOL FACTOR A large, friendly site with access to plenty of activities.

WHO'S IN? Tents, campervans, dogs (no more than 2 per pitch), caravans - yes. Single-sex groups - no.
