Unsure as to what to call this site... answers on an electronic postcard please....

This was just inside the danger area but the flags weren't up and we reckoned the lambs wouldn't be there if there was any danger ;)

The panel was very weathered and the surface of the rock was shaped as much by the natural clefts and cuts as by the carvings. A real shame as there were some very nice shapes.

Another one biting the dust...?

There was a ring around five cups which looked like a clover. A bit like the one on page 75 of Stan B's "British Prehistoric Rock Art" but not quite the right layout...?
