One of a cluster of prehistoric carved rocks found in Panorama Woods, just north of Panorama Drive, Ilkley, West Yorkshire.
This wooded area, sits 60 metres N of the edge of moorland bisected by Victorian housing. The more famous, and now relocated Panorama Stones are thought to have been moved from an area to the west. Referenced ‘IAG 230’ in Boughey & Vickerman’s 2003 publication ‘Prehistoric Rock Art of the West Riding’, it’s described as:
‘Smaller piece of rock. Three cups and depression.’
CSI: Rombalds Moor Project recorded the stone ‘Panorama Wood 01’ on ERA in 2012, describing the same motifs.
Has the rocks topography been used to create natural rings around cups?
