Panorama Stone

Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art

Panorama Stone (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) by Rhiannon Which stone is this? I'm confused about Panorama stones completely. How can this be west of the panorama stone but also be the panorama stone... bother.

In the text it talks of three stones in a line about 100yards west of the Panorama stone - and that this is one of them. And it was 10ft by 7ft, at least when properly uncovered. And it sounds like it got moved to behind some railings opposite St. Margaret's church in Ilkley. Poor Mr Allen reports, it was DEPLORABLY chopped up into several pieces to do so.

From 'The Cup-and-Ring Sculptures of Ilkley' by J Romilly Allen, in the Reliquary and Illustrated Archaeologist, 1896.
