This is an intriguing stone, it stands in isolation at the eastern end of an east-west plateau on Eel Hill with stunning views northwards across the Tees valley towards the northeastern corner of the Pennines. The large deep 'bowl' near the top of the stone seems to be man-made and it could be that it was always meant to hold water or some other liquid. To the right is a cup with a pair of rings while lower down there is a staggered line of three single cup and ring motifs.
