Area of bedrock in the Hawkesley Hill area, 2 miles NNW of Barnard Castle in County Durham.
First recorded by Paul Brown and included his and Barbara Brown’s 2008 publication, ‘Prehistoric Rock Art of the Northern Dales’, this stone was added to ERA by NADRAP in 2008 as ‘Hawkesley Hill 1’. The team recorded:
“… At least three cups can be seen, two of which are turf filled. The stone is comprised of various grain sizes and some weathering is apparent. A number of elongated depressions containing turf are also present, further motifs may be underneath.”
The site was excavated as part of ‘Heart of Teesdale Landscape Partnership’ project in 2015. The project blog can be seen here: http://brignall-hawkesley.blogspot.com/?m=1
