An irregularly-shaped small boulder was identified recently lying amongst post-medieval field clearance adjacent to a field corner. Its upper parts are covered with 40-46 cupmarks. On the exposed irregular top they are badly worn and sometimes uncertainly identified. In one instance a cup is partly encircled by a worn ring, while a second partial ring nearby may be fortuitous. Preservation is better on a ledge near one edge of the boulder and the cups are clearly defined and densely arranged. The stone may well have been moved during post-medieval improvement of the moor and its original context is unknown. (1)
