Possible prehistoric carving found in the Shipley Glen area, near Baildon, West Yorkshire.
First recorded by Sidney Jackson in 1962, this stone was referenced IAG123 in Boughey & Vickerman’s 2003 publication ‘Prehistoric Rock Art of the West Riding’, where they describe:
‘Small, low, slightly domed, smooth grit rock. Three cups with faint markings round and a groove.’
CSI: Rombalds Moor project recorded the stone ‘Glovershaw 02’ on ERA in 2013. They noted similar motifs but suggest a probable natural origin.
On this model, some features look natural, others possibly artificial.
