This is a large boulder just on the edge of Billy's Dyke.
It has a number of possible cups plus natural cups and a large basin. I have have added it because it is mentioned in the book 'Rock Art and Ritual' by Smith and Walker.
There seems to be a little confusion with the name of this boulder, Smith and Walker state that it is known locally as the Cheddar Stone, the Magic Map has it marked as the Cheshire Stone.
Whatever the name it's a cracking spot to sit down, have a brew and take in the views.
