    The full trip report is on my Blog http://teddytourteas.blogspot.com/2011/07/mike-knipe-look-away-now.html
    with other stone links from it. So I’ll just put the Stone photo’s with some extra onto TNA
    I put the blue marks 002,003,004 onto the map and my GPS from the TNA site then logged them when I was at them
    and as they’re touching – both accurate ! Note they’re all to the right of the track (going down)



    But before I got to the first (002) I spotted this one just above it on the left of the path and marked it 001





    Hard to see unless your there but 002 directly below it was easier







    No problems with 003











    Then onto 004













    005 was the dinner stop then 006 was back up the track through the gate and onto the moor



    very faint on photo but better when your there





    On to 007



    Just a single cup





    and finally 008 (maybe natural ?)





    before back to the track and then the van – just thought I’d share cheers all Danny

    Some excellent photos again Danny! When you were on this part of the hills, we'd ventured over onto t'other side, a few miles east. We ended up way off-path though, trudging across the usual boggy marhslands, burnt heathers and deep bracken. One of those bastard Cleggs gimme a good bite aswell - and got away with it!

    Good god! It looks like it's standing on a snake's back! (izzit?) You've gotta give 'em their dues though: they're awesome little bastards. midges

    Hi Danny -

    Back to the cup&ring photos: does the cup-marking on stone 006 have a faint ring around part of it?
