Cup Marked Stone


Finally found the cup marks described here, after walking over them, round them and through them for about an hour ;)

It would appear that, without digging up too much of the surrounding vegitation, there are 17 cup marks visible on the bedrock.

The main group of 11 (?) is described above, and the snow makes them a lot more visible than they were when we went up. About 3m uphill from this main group there are another 4 which 'seem' to be the start of another circle, one in the centre and 3 round it.

About the same distance downhill there is at least one other mark, possibly three but as two were poorly defined they could be natural.

The final one is to the south of the main group, again about 3m.

Don't believe I used to play up here all the time as a kid and I never had the faintest idea this stuff was here :)
