Allan Tofts Carved Rocks - Stone 4a
Stone 4a at NZ8281702955. This flat rock has 14-15 cups some of which form an arc curving around the left hand side of the stone while those to the right are linked or encloses by a pair of grooves. There are several other possible marks on this stone but it is difficult to say whether they are cups or more recent damage.
Allan Tofts Carved Rocks - Stone 4b
Stone 4b at NZ8283002928. Possibly the fanciest carving so far discovered at Allan Tofts this sloping stone has a deep cup surrounded by three rings and an upwards sloping gutter. In the centre two or three cups are linked by a channel and a further small cup and single ring motif is located beneath the sheep droppings and skull.
