Description:Monks once passed this way A green path now crosses the ancient Butterton Bridge on a path which is now little used, but 600 years ago this would have been on an important route from Fountains Abbey to its granges in Nidderdale as well as an iron works at Smelthouses. Much of the route is now lost, but the path that ascends through Booth Wood is part paved with gritstone slabs, whilst a short distance to the east Lacon Cross acts as a waymarker on the same route.
