    Well I've had no replies to http://northernantiquarian.forumotion.net/t424-weston-moor
    and can't find any links on TNA to 002 at SE 18335 49152

    So I'm still wondering if it's been recorded before ?
    cheers all
    Danny

    Patience dear fellow! I've got tons of stuff to do, soz... Embarassed But this one has been recorded, but been thought of as being pretty recent. Boughey & Vickerman list it as stone 536 & say the following:

    "Large isolated conspicuous triangular rock tilted in its own clay-bottomed ditch, over 1.5m high & 1m wide at base: appears to have been quarried. 2 possible broad pecked grooves running together on E face & possible cup and notch on N face. Doubtful - could all be quarry marks."

    Your image does seem to show extra lines and possible faint cups. We could do with giving it another look-over, in good lighting.

    Back later!
