Blacktop

Cup Marked Stone

Fieldnotes

Visited: May 2, 2017

This fine prehistoric example of rock art, a granite boulder over a metre tall, bears over 30 cup-marks on its east-facing surface. On my visit, it was shortly after noon, and the oblique illumination showed the cup-marks to best effect.

Access is by the drive leading to Treetops House. As you approach the house, you pass a tall hedge on your left till finally a grassy path leads left into the field beyond. From here, follow the path for a few metres and look left behind the hedge, where you will see the stone.

The position of the stone is shown by the red marker on the map below.
