|Description ||The pattern caught my eye in the later afternoon sun. A series of tiny cup and rings and more.|

| Peter, this groove is machine-made, not prehistoric, sorry. Nor are the others from this batch.|
| I won't try any more don't worry Andy (I would so love to see a machine that can do this, in this location in any age). If it helps, these stones are mentioned as 'Druidic' in J.Horfall-Tuners book Ancient Bingley in 1898. I realise it is better to be told of certain truth by someone in the 1800's than in these more modern times. Please remove all these images, I realise the error of my ways. All the best, Peter.|
| If we are to believe Roman historians Druids did not use stones in their practises , preferring living trees and groves for their rituals. I have never found anything earlier than than the 18th century suggesting a Druidic origin for megaliths, it seems to be a very Victorian label.|
But I would like to see a very high def image of those markings to be sure that is not a fossil imprint?
