Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art

Hunterheugh 1 (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) by rockandy Hunterheugh 1. View form the outcrop S towards the Tittlington Burn and the hills of Jenny's Lantern. The outcrop was carved, quarried, some surfaces adorned with newer carvings (including the double figure visible in the foreground) and surmounted by a cairn and burial cist during the Bronze Age. A natural rock basin contains water at the back. There is an extensive view from the site; from the hills to the W, to the valley of the Eglingham Burn (which joins the River Aln at Alnwick) and the coast to the E.
