    More Cup&Ring Stones found

    Post  Paulus on Sun Apr 17, 2011 1:33 pm

    We found this and some other previously unrecorded companions very close to each other recently, at a place where you'd have thought they'd have been recorded. Unfortunately the sunlight conditions, aswell as a lack of water to enhance the image, means that the carving doesn't look as good as it could have. Unusually, this and its companions were on vertical faces.



    A series of seven cup-marks are enclosed by a long encircling line, with a couple of other singular cups above the main cluster. It reminded us of the Idol Stone, not too far away...

    Hi Paul, I have a site with a stone that has cup-and-ring marks in a Cumbrian church if your'e interested. Perhaps you prefer stones that are outside. Let me know. Ray.
