Boulder found on Whinnetley Moss, NW of Haydon Bridge, Northumberland.
This stone is one of two possible carvings found immediately west of Langley Barony Mines, NW of Haydon Bridge. Referenced ‘Joicey Shaft A’ on the Beckensall Archive (BA), this rock is recorded as having 3 cups. NADRAP Team 2 added the record to ERA in 2008, described:
“Large boulder which has been split or quarried on south side and has extensive natural erosion at its apex. Sloping north face has two rounded depressions. The one to the east is fed by a natural gully from above and both are possibly the result of natural erosion.”
On this model, 3 depressions on the northern facing slope do appear to have cup-like profiles.
Model created from 6 images captured by Dave Tuck and David Jones (NADRAP team 2) in September 2007. The imagery forms part of the full NADRAP archive deposited with Historic England & Northumberland County Council.
