Possible prehistoric carving found in the Shipley Glen area, near Baildon, West Yorkshire.
This small dome shaped rock is found in linear cairn / walling structure and is referenced IAG125 in Boughey & Vickerman’s 2003 publication ‘Prehistoric Rock Art of the West Riding’, where they describe:
‘Small, rounded smooth grit rock. One clear cup.’
The CSI: Rombalds Moor project referenced the stone ‘Glovershaw 03’ on ERA in 2013. They question the artificiality of the depression and suggest probable natural formation. However, on this model, the depression looks more artifcial than natural.

This decimated model was created from 2 stereo pairs captured by Peter Butler & Barry Wilkinson (CSI Team) in April 2012. The imagery forms part of the HLF funded CSI: Rombalds Moor / Watershed Landscape Project archive.
