old things revisited

1st July 2017, Embleton Bay, 8am

Looks like the recent spell of wet weather is fading away and it was dry and a bit warmer this morning.

1st July 2017, Chatton Park Hill, 3pm

This the Kettley Stone - it last appeared on this blog in 2012 but it's very and hasn't changed much.  It's an early Christian font.

These are much older and no one knows what the significance of these cup and ring marks was to the people who carved them. To me they resemble raindrops hitting a pool of water. (PS sheep poo is of more recent date!) They are in a poor state compared to 2012.  I think they had been cleaned up for academic study in the mid-2000's and they're fading back to natural rock now.  They're completely surrounded by shoulder-high bracken at this time of year.

This is the view (180 panorama) from this location. Much nicer walk without the mist.
