Cup and ring marked rocks, Wandylaw Moor (Ellingham)

A rock on Wandylaw Moor is decorated with carvings. They are cup and ring motifs and have been known since at least the 19th century. In the late 20th century it has been suggested that the rock may not be in its original position and may have been moved during improvements to the moor. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
