|Description ||The Chapel Stile Rock Art site with its extensive panel of spirals, lines and cup marks, carved onto the glacial smoothed boulders in the foreground. This enchanting and important site is below the Langdale Pikes, which is a large area of Neolithic polished stone axe production. Photographed during an Archaeology Safari of Cumbria 18th October 2003.|
|I can never understand why people want to climb around on boulders and deface ancient art when there are such splendid MOUNTAINS to climb.|
|I love this picture, it really captures the site well, lovely light, fantastic mountains. This is a great site to visit, the rock art needs to be seen to be believed. The area in shadow on the largest rock is almost covered in the patterns.
There were two young "boulderers" there when we visited. They were sunbathing below the stone, and seemed to wonder what we were doing taking photos of a rock! However, as we moved away, they got up and inspected the rock art, probably for the first time. Hopefully they saw the rock with new eyes, and won't be using the cups as hand holes any longer.....|
