CUP AND RING MARKED STONE

DESCRIPTION + /

A cup and ring marked stone was found in Horsforth in the 1960s when Low Hall was being renovated. It was placed in the grounds of Kirkstall Abbey (record 51263) for safe keeping. The gritstone rock measured 1.5 metres by 1.2 metres by 0.9 metres. It was situated in the public park south west of the remains of the Abbey Guest House, 8 metres west of a path junction and 1.4 metres south of the edge of the path (SE 2585 3618). The carving on the east end of the rock comprised five cups, all with single rings, one with a possible second ring and some with grooves from the cup.
It was returned to Horsforth in 2010 and placed circa 5 metres away from the Millenium stone (SE 2355 3783) on the Green opposite the museum at the junction of Fink Hill, Hall Lane and Church Road . The original location at Low Hall is noted in record 51354.
