Brow Moor stone 8a
Stone 8a at NZ95610124. This is quite a worn rock which uses natural faults and features to divide the designs carved on in into different zones. The top of the stone consists mainly of cups (about thirty) with several to the left of centre being joined by a curving groove while at the far left a cup and ring motif is partly obscured by heather. On the lower section below the curved crack the designs are more complex but are difficult to make out, on the left are several worn vertical grooves with a large cup to their right, and to the right of this are two or possibly three cups each with single rings and more short vertical grooves.
Brow Moor stone 8c
Stone 8c at NZ95620125. This slab has around half a dozen worn cups and a possible curving groove.
Brow Moor stone 8d
Stone 8d at NZ95620125. This is a rather unusual stone, its rough surface suggests very little erosion and the carving consist only of three oval shaped grooves one of which is visible in the centre of the image above and another just between the two clumps of heather towards the bottom.
Brow Moor stone 8g
Stone 8g at NZ95680126. This rather attractive triangular rock hidden amongst the grasses has about twelve cups, two of which are enclosed by rings.
