The current maypole is 75 feet long, with 8 feet below ground. .Painted green with a weather vane on top, it stands in raised stone steps. The notice from Otley Town Council reads: “A maypole has stood on this site for many centuries. Present pole erected 1962”
The maypole has a second white maypole in front of it and it is this which is used for dancing around.
