    Strange Rock sculptures

    Post  QDanT on Mon May 07, 2012 3:39 am

    I'm not sure what these are ? so I'll put them in here rather than Rock Art.
    Visited 5-5-2012 see :- http://teddytourteas.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/rocking-moor.html
    480 ft. from Raven Stone, see :- http://northernantiquarian.forumotion.net/t617-raven-stone-25-cups
    at SE 11943 58071











    and 1/2 mile WSW at SE 11051 57853











    Anyone any ideas ? natural erosion ? carved ?
    cheers Danny

    Wow, Dan, haven't a clue what they are but they're stunning. Was a bit worried about the whereabouts of Teddy but he did appear in your later pix.

    I love these sorta things. There are some rocks very similar to these on the moors above Keighley, which our old ancestors would, without doubt, people with fascinating mythic lore...
