Cup marked rock, nr Holymoorside

Cup Marked Stone


Stone within a wall near the Moor at Holymoorside, and it's associated cup/ring marked boulder.

2 cup marks visible albeit the one on the right rather 'knocked about'/damaged.

Left cup mark, well ground out, rounded 48mm diameter and quite deep, slight pock marked.

Stone rather pallid in appearance cf. other stones of the wall, more in keeping with the dense, pallid, gritstone of the nearby multi- cup-marked boulder, on the moor.
A contemporary cup marked stone?, perhaps one of many such decorated stones, of a presumed burial cairn, long since decimated, the large boulder now being part of a very obvious 'clearance' cairn.
