Two prehistoric carved rocks on Hunters Moor, Broomridge. (Ford)

Two carved rocks dating to the late Neolithic or early Bronze Age, can be found on a high ridge on Hunter's Moor, Broomridge. One rock has at least 14 figures of various types, whilst the other, 100 metres westward from the first rock, has at least 11 traceable figures. The westerly outcrop also contains millstones, presumably from a later use of the site to quarry for millstones. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
