|Description ||This is my favourite ancient site. Although the rocks are natural, the pillars of rock look like profiles of people. If I can see it, I'm sure the ancient peoples could too. |
|Those grooves remind me of carved rocks at Almescliffe and Cowling pinacle, Yorkshire. If they're natural, why don't all the rocks have 'weathering' patterns like that? Only some of the rosks look like that and I think they're carved.|
|I pondered these rocks a long time, and I think the retreating glacier from the last ice age must have gushed and melted with quite a force to form these strange weathering patterns. The top of the stride, between the two "chimneys" is covered in "cups". I think these too, are glacial weathering marks. This doesn't in any way detract from the magic of the site. The stones look carved, they look like gods, and I think this could have been a temple for our neolithic ancestors. A fantastic place.|
