Brow Moor stone 2b
Stone 2b at NZ96210174. A mostly flat faced angular slab with an eroded cup and multiple ring design. The cup near the middle of the rock has a gutter leading from it (very faint in the photograph) and three penannulars, the fourth is worn and may or may not be complete. The part of the rock nearest the camera is on a slightly lower level and it could be that there are several grooves running across it (shown on the inset image)
Brow Moor stone 'c'
Stone 'c' at NZ96010181. Unfortunately due to the flat light the markings on this boulder are not very clear on the photograph. A line of cups follow the left hand edge of the rock then curve round the top while an arc on the front face has a ring and short gutter around one cup. To the right a collection of eight cups appear more random but may be in short rows of three-three-two. As always these designs are open to much interpretation!
Brow Moor stone 2t
Stone 2t at NZ96490160. This stone lies fairly close to the main track that runs along the northeastern edge of the moor above Stoupe Brow. The designs are difficult to make out but consist of a pair of grooves that in part follow the shape of the stone but divide it into two zones, the larger encloses a pair of cups with a single cup within the smaller zoned area.
