Carved rock 325 - The Idol Stone is just along the track.
Green Crag Slack is a strip of land about a mile and a half in length below Green Crag and Woofa Bank on the northeast of Rombald's Moor. There are many carved stones within this area including the Idol Stone and the Pancake Rock as well as the damaged remains of cairns and settlement or enclosure walls although most are so mutilated as to be unrecognisable.
The grid reference given at the top of the page is for the large unnamed boulder shown here (PRAWR 325). It stands next to the track that leads up to Green Crag and has several cups, one with a clear ring and several angular grooves although some of them may be natural.
