Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art


Although it's only 40 minutes away, I'd put off a visit to this site for some time. After all, if you're going to look at a relatively rare cup and nine rings (amongst other things), you want the conditions to be just right.

The weather looked good for the day so now was the time to go for it. Low sun and virtually cloud-free. Excellent.

The visit got off to a good start. I met the farm owner just as she was leaving. Yes I could wander around and it was ok to park up at the farm.

There are 10 main areas of rock art here. I've listed them under Miscellaneous. Many of the references are around 20 years old so we can expect vegetation and weathering to have taken its toll.

I did not try to visit all of them. I was able to find Castleton 2, Castleton 3 and Castleton 7 and have created sub-sites for these.

I searched for but could not find Castleton 1, 4 and 5. I'm sure there is a lot more to see here - even in the areas where my search drew a blank.
