West Loups's 1 cup marks, Cotherstone MoorYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
West Loups is located south of Loups’s Hill, Cotherstone Moor, County Durham. The circumstances of the rock art discovery are unclear but the panel became a Scheduled Monument in 1998. Englands Rock Art database catalogues it as ERA-1704. Eight cup-like depressions were found on the flat upper surface of a coarse-grained sandstone boulder, which measures approximately 5x3 m while the depth at the southern end is about 1 m. Due to the natural morphology of the sandstone surface, the friability of the rock and the effects of weathering, it is difficult to determine if these cups are natural or anthropogenic in origin. The question remains why much more interesting Loups’s rock art panels were not Scheduled while this one was? More information about this panel is found in Lymer 2015.
