|This carved rock, which probably dates to the Bronze
Age, is easy to find as it is propped up against the north wall of Dobrudden
Farm although exactly where on Baildon Moor this stone originally lay is uncertain.
The top part of the stone has nine cups, two of which have rings which intersect each other. The bottom half has about seventeen cups, the top three are in a row with intersecting rings around them. Four cups on the left hand side have a groove running round them, and there seems to be a groove that continues around the bottom and up the side of the stone. Three sets of cups are also linked.
A couple of metres to the northeast is a small flat stone which has two cup and rings and a pair of groves which could be natural.
