The Sepulchre Stone is a large freestanding rock that has some interesting geological folds as well as several cups, one with a ring, on its top surface. Because the surface of the stone is worn through years of weather erosion and from people climbing on top of it, it is difficult to tell which of the cups are natural and which are man-made.

This prominent rock stands next to the track that leads over the northern edge of Rombald's Moor past other carved rocks such as the Swastika Stone, the Piper Crag Stone and the Anvil.
