Cow and Calf Rocks

Natural Rock Feature

Cow and Calf Rocks (Natural Rock Feature) by Kozmik_Ken 19th C graffiti on the Cow and Calf rocks. It was recorded in the mid 19th C that both the Cow and the Calf rocks bore cup and groove markings. Now presumably lost under the onslaught of graffiti and the wear of visitor's feet.

Nearby was once a Bull rock, which was quarried away in the 1850's. It is probably safe to assume that this rock once bore prehistoric carvings too.
