Took the path up through the wonderful Troller's Ghyll to Skyreholme and found three carved rocks (there's many more but didn't have time to look) and possible rubble walling nearby. Kozmik_Ken Posted by Kozmik_Ken

There are two ways into this area. You can walk along Black Hill Road from the B6265 or you can do as we did and park at Middle Skyreholme and walk up Skyreholm Bank. A GPS would be very useful to help you finding the rocks, many of which are in the fields around the track. As you march up the bank you will come to a fork in the road. The rock art posted by myself and Stu is all from the area surrounding Black Hill Road.
The stones with the most complex motifs have views into the Skyreholme valley and beyond. The rocks with simpler motifs tend to be on the lower north facing slopes looking towards the B6265 and Grimwith Fell.

Skyreholme Walled Boulder (Cup Marked Stone) — Fieldnotes

Sadly this stone has suffered a little since I was here last. Some bright sparks have carved their names into the side of the boulder.
Rich mentioned that there may be a plan to site a stile over this stone. The sooner the better I reckon.

Skyreholme - Chopper's Stone (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) — Fieldnotes

Whilst searching the Pinder Hawes Hill area of Skyreholme I came across a stone with a small, worn cup mark on it. I though little of it and mentioned it in passing to Greame.
On passing the stone Greame decided to lift the turf whilst making some throw-away remark that there was probably a pristine cup lurking below the turf...
Bugger me, he was right! Up came the turf to reveal a lovely large fresh-looking oval cup.
As far as we know, this is a new discovery the credit for which rests firmly with Greame C.
