629 Gardom's Edge

Rock Art sounds very modern, but the cup and ring marked rock on Gardom's Edge dates back to Neolithic times. Numerous prehistoric features have been found here including a massive stone bank, cairns, house platforms and a standing stone. Hopefully, following our instructions, you'll find the inscribed boulder quicker than we did.
