Knotties Stone

Knotties Stone is an example of prehistoric rock art and listed as a scheduled monument by Historic England. It is one of very few examples of rock art found on The Chevin today but is so badly eroded now that it is very difficult to see.

Description from WYAS: ‘Medium-sized embedded rock of medium grit with small pebble inclusions (making it a surprising choice for carving). Two cups, one at the bottom of a groove leading form the centre of a design now difficult to make out, except that three rings surround it: there are suggestions of two more inner rings but the area is too worn to be clear about what was carved’
