Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art


" in 1865 a visitor to Ben Rhydding Hydro, a Mr Terry, was watching men prepare for quarrying, when he noticed some fine rock carvings in danger of being destroyed. He informed Dr. McLeod at the Hydro who appealed to Squire Middleton to stop the quarying. The carvings cover 17m & are of an unusual design. There are many cups, rings & grooves, 3 larger than usual."
