Haystack by Rhiannon From 'The Cup-and-Ring Sculptures of Ilkley' by J Romilly Allen, in the Reliquary and Illustrated Archaeologist, 1896.
The text says "A quarter of a mile south of the Cow and Calf, higher up the moor, on the comparatively level plateau above Pancake Ridge, is the sculptured boulder shown on fig. 1. It is 1,000 feet above the sea, and is 15 feet long by 12 feet broad by 6 feet high. A central ridge runs along the whole length of the stone, and on the sloping surfaces on each side are carved between forty and fifty cups, in at least nine cases surrounded by a single ring."

(Does anyone know which tma page this should be on?!)
