Rock with shot holes
Rock with shot holes
I guess this rock was split with explosives to remove a slab for making a big grindstone. Along the top surface there is another line of smaller dents. Not far away is an abandoned grindstone photographed by Andrew Hill which can be seen here.SK2575 : Formed grindstone by Curbar Edge
