Weary Hill Stone
This medium sized triangular chunk of rock sits low to the ground and partly overgrown although it is fairly easy to find if you know where you are looking. It is quite badly worn but about a dozen cups are still clearly visible, four of them have rings, two of these having grooves running from the rings.

One word of warning about this northern end of Ilkley Moor - don't be fooled by the map into thinking that Keighley road is in fact a road. At the turn for Silver Well Cottage it is blocked to traffic and after that it soon deteriorates into a gravel track suitable only for four wheel drive vehicles.
