Lucker Moor (Round Cairn) by rockandy Cup-marked rock, Longstone Hill, Lucker Moor.

The rock with a large basin-like cup is approximately 60m NW of the Long Stone just below the edge of the escarpment (NU 1185 2706). Is it a natural erosion feature or man-made?

Although no marked rocks are recorded in this position in the Beckensall archive many are recorded from S of the Lucker Moor cairns and W of Lucker Moor at Chatton Sandyfords.

Most rock on the moors may have been moved into field-clearance or the many burial cairns at different stages in the history of man's use of the area.
