Access Type: Private (Ask landowner’s permission prior to visiting the site).
Location/Setting: This boulder is located on private land, in an area which is overgrown with gorse. 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 large earthfast granite boulder (2.10m E-W x 1.55m N-S x 0.75m high) has a relatively flat upper surface, and very steep south and east sides. The full extent of the boulder is unknown as it is under vegetation to the north and west. There is considerable foliose lichen growing on the quite friable surface of the rock.
The Art: The rock is decorated with a scatter of c.19 cupmarks (5cm-9cm diameter, 2cm-5cm deep) across its surface and an elongated depression (19cm x 9cm) in the eastern part. Some of the cupmarks are quite large, while others are shallow and small. There is no clear pattern, but some of the larger cupmarks in the western part of the stone face may form a linear arrangement.
