Weetwood Moor

Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art


Up on the moor, turning off the Wooler to Chatton road at a 90ยบ corner head up the single track road until you cross the first cattle grid. Park here and the rocks are on your right about 100yards away.

Stone markers have been left to show which rcoks are inscribed.

Our Neolithic friends had plenty of canvas to work on, but some of the largest & flattest rocks are untouched.

Looking at the views, maybe this is because of the carvings alignment with the surroundings. There are new trees nearby, but if you look to the South-West you can see the twin hills of Harthope and Cheviot.

A Sacred Landscape.
