Baildon Moor Carving 4 (PRAWR 146)

This triangular stone is the most highly decorated rock on Baildon Moor. It is covered with a complex series of around 50 cups along with rings and grooves in a baffling arrangement that defies easy description. Another striking thing about the stone is the view - down past Shipley Glen and over to Bingley and Saltaire.
To find this stone take the track that leads south from Dobrudden Farm towards a wall in the distance. When you reach it walk down its right hand side and past an entrance. From here head out diagonally, the stone is fairly visible, but when I was there about a quarter of it was covered with invading undergrowth.
