Probable prehistoric carved boulder found on private land within Stobgreen Plantation, N of Eggleston, County Durham.
Possibly record ‘D10312’ in the county Historic Environment Record. NADRAP added the record to ERA referencing ‘Stobgreen Plantation N01’ and describing:
‘…Two cups and one possible, on flat surface of boulder, are shallow and large diameter in relation to the panel measuring 0.09 - 0.10 m diameter and 0.02 m deep. Noteworthy that this is another triangular, pointed rock with large cups carved into the pointed end. Stone is very quartzy and there are voids where crystals have dropped out. The cups are almost certainly artificial and similar in size (though not depth) to Brackenheads 3 which is approximately 500 m away.’
Model created from 5 stereo pairs captured by Joe Gibson (NADRAP Team 3) in August 2005. The imagery forms part of the full NADRAP archive deposited with Historic England.
