Description:

Location/Setting: This boulder is located on private land, which appears to have been used for grazing. It is situated to the north of Keocha Brook, which is not visible from the panel, but the sound of the flowing water can be heard.

The Rock: This granite boulder appears to be in its original position. It is earthfast and very low profile. It is at ground level and its western edge is under sod. Where visible, the boulder measures 1.05m in length (E-W) and 0.80m in width (N-S).

The Art: The horizontal face of the boulder is covered with a scatter of cupmarks, some of which are more eroded than others. In total there are c.26 cupmarks (2-6cm deep, 5-10cm diam.). There does not appear to be any clear patterning, although there is some clustering of the larger cupmarks.
