They were on the horizonatal section of the cross. I aint been here in years, but can't see that they'd have faded away (unless I was dreaming!). Though I recall the cross was vandalised a few years back and resurrected so might have changed position. I'll have a venture up misself and check it out again now you've said this.
You've missed your chance I'm afraid.
If the cup marks were on the horizontal stone forming the 'arms' of the cross, then it's now probably in some F*ckwits garden :(
I was up there three weeks ago and it appeared to have been stolen. Whilst I was there a guy walking his dog commented to me that he had seen the cross piece broken off and on the ground two weeks previous to that. I couldn't see it lying around anywhere nearby.
It's unfortunate that the track is open that goes over the moor and right past the site. It'd make it relatively easy for someone to go up in their 4X4 and chuck it in the back...
Anyway, I went up again today and took a pic, so you can see the state it's in.
