Amerside Law north

Standing Stone / Menhir


This site is a lovely clearing in the forest. The site is raised and roughly circular and has signs of quarrying on its edges. To one side of the raised area is a substantial upright stone, judging from the fluting on the stone it has been stood upright for a long time. Upon lifting some of the turf I found a simple eroded cup and ring, on further investigation we also found another very weathered cup with a possible ring.
There was some debate as to whether these carvings represent the site recorded as Amerside Law 2.

The current Flash Earth images shows a distinctly bare patch, in the same approximate place as Stan's panel 2 dot on the map:
A small clearing, right in the middle of the thickest, tangliest bit.
