Stone relocated to private property near Shortflatt, NW of Belsay, Northumberland.
Referenced ‘Shortflatt a’ on the Beckensall Archive (BA) this stone now resides in a niche at Shortflatt Tower and is described as:
‘A finely made cup and groove at the centre of two well-spaced penannulars.’
BA also provides the following info:
‘The four marked rocks (Shortflatt a-d) have come to light in fields dominated by a huge, unexcavated burial mound known as the Shortflatt tumulus. The farmer has also drawn attention to an area (NZ 0835 8060) where much stone has been ploughed out over many years 30m from the western edge of the field boundary; it may be the site of another cairn.’
Model created from 4 stereo pairs captured by Joe Gibson (NADRAP Team 3) in April 2007. The imagery forms part of the full NADRAP archive deposited with Historic England & Northumberland County Council.
