Baildon Moor Carving 2 (PRAWR 154)

Plan of PRAWR 154 (Baildon Moor 2)This flat slab can be difficult to find even though it lies near to a bell pit southeast of the Dobrudden Farm and fairly close to a track.
It has around 25 mostly small cups scattered over it with the main carvings on the west and north side. The first group consists of 3 large linked cups with an oval groove running around them, the whole thing looking a little like a stylized face. The second group is a complex and confusing pattern that includes 6 deep cups, some with rings, some joined, and with a deep groove around the formation. There is also a deep groove on the southern side of the stone.
