Siward's Howe


Siward's Howe

Siward's Howe, also known as Heslington Hill, is a terminal moraine located in York. It is fabled for its imposing water tower, rumours of pagan rites taking place on it, and Siward himself, the Danish warrior romanticised in Macbeth, rumoured to be buried beneath the hill.

It is the contemporary site of much of the campus of the University of York.
