Hameldon Pasture cup-marked stone

In the vicinity of the denuded ring-cairn and old tumulus of Worsthorne Hill, the Calderdale historian Mr J.A. Heginbottom described finding this simple cup-marked rock, a hundred yards or so northwest of the old circle. In my ambles here I was unable to locate it. The stone may have been reburied or destroyed.  Are there any locals out there who know anything more about this site?
