The Tree Of Life Rock (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) — Fieldnotes

Once you've crossed the field and are on the moor itself the stone wall dog-legs to the left and this is where the rock is - in a direct line with Carr Farm and the radio mast.
It really is a beautiful carving.

Snowden Carr I (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) — Fieldnotes

Near the track on the right leading to Carr Farm there is a gate and the large panel is in this field, about 15 yards away.
The carving is very clearly defined - a perfect example of cup and ring - so much so that it may have been protected by vegetation till relatively recently.
About 500 yards further to the west over the wall and on the moor itself is the exquisite Tree of Life - definitely worth a visit.

The Tree Of Life Rock (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) — Folklore

E.T. Cowling in "Rombalds Way" (1946) describing the Tree of life stone, records that ......

"it is one of the few known to local inhabitants, and marks the site of many May day religious services." Mayday folklore and customs have often been related to promoting fertility in people, animals and the land. Perhaps there is a link to Yorkshires' other carved stone The Fertility Stone
