Littlestone, Bingley Moor, West Yorkshire

Cup-Marked Stone:  OS Grid Reference – SE 1122 4349

Getting Here

Follow the directions to reach the nice Big Rock carving.  Once here, walk up the gentle slope less than 100 yards eastwards.  Get here before the heather grows back, otherwise it’s unlikely you’ll find it!

The Little Stone, Bingley Moor

The Little Stone, Bingley Moor

Not previously catalogued, this is just a small trivial little stone with just a single cup-marking on it.  There’s a somewhat debatable line which looks more likely on the photo than when you actually see it in situ.  As we had the Big Rock just down the slope from here, I thought this could be a little rock, or Little Stone (makes sense!).  It was found by your very own Paul and those of you with the wills to seek it out, don’t be disappointed as most are with such a Littlestone. It’s certainly not as rosy as those close by, but hey – it’s another carved rock!
