Cup-and-Ring Stone: OS Grid Reference – SE 0717 4471
From the B6265 valley road between Bingley and Keighley, just near Riddlesden Hall, take the road up and over the canal into Riddlesden, bearing left up past West Riddlesden Hall and up Banks Lane. As you reach the T-junction at the top, where you hit the Silsden Road that goes round the moors, park up. Cross the road and follow the footpath up the field, go over a stile and continue up the track to the next gate. Once through this gate, go across the field to another gate which leads to a narrow track. The stone is situated on the left hand side about 75 yards from the gate.

A mud fossil of a giant/creature ?
It’s a good grit stone but I know where your coming from. It looks like a whale to me
It looks as if it wants to be standing up. Is it landfast? (I like that word).
Yes it’s well in the ground! It looks like a whale to me
