Anvil Rock
The Anvil Rock looking to the northwest
This is a medium sized triangular flat slab that perches on top of a pile of rocks with its tip pointing to the northeast. It stands to the west of the Swastika Stone along the same track that follows the northern edge of Rombalds Moor above the River Wharf.

Its worn surface has several cups although it is difficult to say which are man made and which are natural. As with the other carved stones in this area it has fine views across the Wharf Valley.
