Lanshaw Stone

Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art


As can be seen from the photo, this stone was partly covered in grit which seemed to be coming from erosion from the natural break which runs through the centre of the stone. The grit partly obscures the cupmarks on the right of the photo.

The heather had been burnt away which made the stone fairly visible. There are 20 cups in total, two ringed.

Number 334 in "Prehistoric Rock Art of the West Riding. SE 13427 45390.

I think the grit has been left there by a game keeper for grouse. They leave piles of grit, and boxes of it too, all over the moor. Posted by hatless
