Either approach from the usually boggy path from the Wetstone Gate transmission masts to the east, or along the forestry wall up from Rivock Edge.

A large scatter of boulders, one of which is used as a boundary stone still. A number of rocks bear large cups similar to those on the 'entrance stone' at Willy Hall's Wood and one large, upended triangular boulder is beautifully weathered.

Very strange place. The fall of boulders is covered in huge natural cup marks. One huge stone stands upended, covered in pits and tracks, like a giant nature hewn version of the Badger Stone. IronMan Posted by IronMan
