Cup-Marked Stone: OS Grid Reference – SE 17766 51295
Follow the directions to reach the Snowden Moor settlement and, from the Upper D-shaped enclosure (at SE 1782 5131) walk west up the sloped hillock 30 yards west and, on its top, head to its northern edge where a small cairn can be found. The carving is next to it.
Archaeology & History
Very close to what seems to be the boundary between the Snowden Moor Settlement and its adjacent Cemetery is this small earthfast rock with three cup-markings on it, two of which may be linked by a small line. I have to say that we have to be cautious about the veracity of this carving. By the side of this stone is what seems to be the remains of a cairn.
