Roughting Linn (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) — Fieldnotes

Visited the site after going to the duddo stone and the battle stone. It was only after leaving the site travelling home and arriving in Millfield I realised how easy it is to get there.
Never got down to the waterfall as the fiancee wanted to go home. All this around her and she wants her tea.
Anyway, what a place. The ditches are big and a puzzle. The rock art on the stone is in very condition and plenty of it.
I have got photos to put on, but I have not got photoshop after wiping my drive before christmas and I cannot find the disk.
At the back of the monument, is that a water channel or where rain water has worn away at the stone.
Also is that a grave at the back?

Duddo Five Stones (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

Visited the stones on Sunday and I am convinced that this is a burial site. Nice views and a nice day.

Lordenshaw (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) — Fieldnotes

Went on the eleventh of this month and loved it. The main panel and hillfort - superb. Think I saw some cairns and I have a photograph but I am not sure of what it is. It is not the ones I have posted.

Sunkenkirk (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

Went on the Fourteenth of this month. Drizzly, misty and a girlfriend who was is very understanding about stones circles, henges and rock art ect. Parking near the circle is not an option, so you need to walk for at least twenty minutes. We took a little longer as there are stones that look like they are in circles and you cannot help but investigate.
I enjoyed the walk there and back.
I did find a carving of some sort, but not sure whether it is natural, man made, ancient or otherwise. I will submit the photo when I can find it, should not take me long. Will also submit a photo of me looking at it to help show you where it is.

Barningham Moor (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) — Miscellaneous

Where is the best place to park the car as I am very unfamilar with the site. Went about July as had nothing planned and the day was nice. Think I found some hut circles, but I do not remember any forests. Otherwise I was dissapointed. I was wondering what that huge mound was at the bottom was.

As long as weather conditions are alright next week and the place is not under three feet of snow I am planning on going to see the whole Lordenshaw site. I have read about a car park, is it far from the site itself and is North Lordenshaw far away.

I got interested into all this by accident. A day off from work and watched a program about circles and that was that. A whole new world opened up and a lot more interesting than most.
Disapointed there is nothing closer to home to see. Bedes Well is a waste of time.
If I go down to the allotment and dig deep enough who knows what I might find.
