I got a tweet today sent by the Armitt Museum in Ambleside, about this carved rock in the Langdale Valley:-
Copt Howe Carved Rock / Rock-Art - Chapel Stile, Cumbria
The rock is featured on a web site called Stone-circles.org. which is well worth a look if you are into archaeology or have an interest in ancient history.
I have to admit that I have passed by this rock on a number of occasions, and seen the shapes carved into it, but always assumed that they were a result of natural erosion. It seems I am not the only one. All of which begs the question, "how many more ancient carvings are just lying around in the fields of the Lake District just waiting to be discovered?"
