Rock Art in Northumberland

This rock art panel was recorded by Beckensall as having four faint cups in an arced row. During NADRAPs survey, no motifs were discernable and may have weathered away. For more information see England's Rock Art entry for ERA-128 Weetwood Moor 5b, which includes a brief description, archive photographs and photogrammetry, plus media from the Beckensall Archive.

Please note that whilst this rock art panel is recorded on ERA as being located on Open Access land, RAMP (Rock Art on Mobile Phones) records: the owner of the land has now advised that access to this land, as private property, may no longer be possible without his specific permission and hence you may not be able to visit these sites.
