Pikestones (Chambered Cairn) — Fieldnotes

Whilst walking from Pikestones in search (unsuccessfully) for Devils ditch I passed the site at 58 degrees . This looks like a settlement site rather than a stone circle. On our way back with the sun at a very low angle (8.45pm late May) about 100 yards from the settlement site towards Pikestones, and directly on the path I came across this stone showing clear signs of having been worked. The striations are parallel and deep. First thoughts were plough marks although any one who knows this area will doubt it has ever been ploughed. The marks are very evenly spaced to be anything other than intentional. Comment welcome.
