A cup, ring and ladder motif.
A plan of the carvings
The Barmishaw stone has some of Ilkley's
speciality carvings, the so called 'ladders' which consist of a pair of parallel
grooves linked by perpendicular 'rungs' - it is thought that this pattern is unique
to this stone and the Panorama Stone.
The patterns on the stone can be difficult to make out but there appear to be
6 of these ladder forms, as well as 24 cups,
9 of which have rings.
