This was the last visit of the day and what a crackin' stone it is. Not too sure I get the 'stone-triangle'.....dunno why, there are two other stones forming the triangle.....Just didn't spring to mind that they were all part of the same thing, like the way say Ramsdale did/does.
This lovely stone is situated on Stoney Marl Moor.
The easiest way to access it is to park up in the layby on the A171 where you will also find a caravan selling teas and assorted fried meat products.
Use the northerly footpath that runs by Cook House and then follow your nose onto the moor.
There are cup and ring marked rocks recorded on this moor and the search continues.
As the name of the moor implies, there are many rocks on the moor and the local stone contains ferruginous nodules that weather out to produce what I call pseudo cups, so be aware (they've caught me out a couple of times).
Further up the path there are some nice round barrows, one of which shows signs of recent disturbance. ( the ghost of Cannon Greenwell perhaps?).
"Knox was perhaps the first to recognise the stone triangle. He records one from Ramsdale Hill Top, two miles west-south-west of Robin Hood's Bay made of stones 4-6 feet high; also three small stones near a small barrow at Dry Heads, Harwod Dale. Another near Stoup Brow forms an acute triangle, the tallest stone known as the Grey Horse Stone being not more than 5 feet high".
