    West Loups's

    Post  QDanT on Tue Feb 05, 2013 9:38 am

    I was reading a friends Blog [Pieman's] and this passage took my eye :-
    And the place for a shelter will be the abandoned and ruined sixteenth century farmstead of West Loups’s
    This is plonked squarely , or at least, roundly within the banks of a previous, mediaeval farmstead. And all around, to be hunted amongst the rank grasses , are several boulders sporting cup and ring markings.
    I looked it up on the map and it's 5 miles (Crow flies) West of Barnard Castle in Teesdale

    I've filed it, in my "to visit" folder for a summer day expedition, in the mean time I'll see if I can find any more information
    starting of course with Uncle(come and sit on my knee)Paul
    and who could fail to not go and have a look at the Chalybeate Spring called "Burble Well" 1.37 miles North East
    I marked it on the map with a red arrow. I'll give a shout out on here if I get an expedition together.
    cheers all Danny

    Just had a message back from Pieman :-
    Dan - There seems to be a bunch of cup and ring stones around there - mainly quite difficult to find. But Burble Well -ah yes, It's two very deep wells covered by manhole covers in an orange bog (hence the chalybeate). Its all very soggy. Just follow Burble Beck.
    cheers
    all Danny

    Soz I aint been with it over the last year. Had some bad emotional shit to deal with.

    Naathen - rock art round Cotherstone Moor, East & West Loup. There's a few round there, but I aint been up to see any of it. If anyone can get good photos of 'em, I'll add profiles of each carving separately on TNA. Here's 10-figure grid-refs for those listed by Paul Brown (natural & recent carvings not included):

    1. NY 97561 17676
    2. NY 97328 17663
    3. NY 97133 17700
    4. NY 97349 17947
    5. NY 96996 17953
    6. NY 977 181 (lost)
    7. NY 96862 17622
    8. NY 96806 17480
    9. NY 96576 17340
    10. NY 96696 17256
    11. NY 96716 17214
    13. NY 96564 17191
    14. NY 96484 17142
    15. NY 96709 16797
    16. NY 96716 16799
    17. NY 96227 17528

    No doubt there are gonna be others in that landscape.

    I'm gonna be down Lancashire next month and might have time to go up there, but truly not sure. I'll let y' know closer to the time Dan. I've gotta get some new images of some of the unrecorded cup&rings nr Keighley for a talk I'm doing near Preston, so will be on Rombald's Moor for a coupla days, but aint sure about the rest of the time. It'd be good to have a bimble up Cotherstone though.
