|Description ||Hartwith Moor Standing Stone SE 21223 62733
There are 3 possible cup marks on the side of the menhir (Prehistoric Rock
Art of the West Riding, 2003), but I didn't notice them. Having said that,
there were so many little indentations on it's surface, they could've been any of them!
The farmer, who'd lived there all his life, told me that the stone was pushed over by cattle in recent years. After a prolonged bout of torrential
rain, the ground (which is damp pasture anyway) became so soft, the cows
constant rubbing and scratching made it topple into the mud. The farmer and his family re-erected it. It seemed pretty well planted to me. Hat's off to him!|
