Neb Stone

Cup Marked Stone


I thought this stone got its name from the fact that it looks a bit like a nose (as in ‘keep yer neb out’ = stop being nosey). Apparently it is a Yorkshire term meaning ‘to kiss’, Paul Bennett say in ‘Circles, Standing Stones and legendary rocks of West Yorkshire’ that lovers used to meet to hold their trysts here.
