    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

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 001-1

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 001a

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

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 002

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 002a

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 002b

    No problems with 003

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 003

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 003b

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 003c

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 003d

    Then onto 004

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 004

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 004a

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 004b

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 004c

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 004d

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 004e

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

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 006

    very faint on photo but better when your there

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 006a

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 006b

    On to 007

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 007

    Just a single cup

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 007a

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 007b

    and finally 008 (maybe natural ?)

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 008

    Nussey Green 9-7-11 008a

    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!

    Hi Danny -

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