Newtown Mill

Standing Stone / Menhir


The NMR reckons there are a couple of cupmarks on this stone, it does make the proviso that the stone is weathered, which it is, but the cups are a bit dubious.

It's a similar stone to many of those in Northumbria, some of which have undeniable cups, but these two are a bit iffy, maybe it's because they've been well hammered by the elements. I couldn't for the life of me get a decent photo of them.

Strangely, Stan B doesn't include them in any of his books, nor are they on the online Archive.

It's a canny old stone though.
