Face Carved On Boulder
Face Carved On Boulder
Only 20 yards or so East of the path, but how many walkers know it is there? The face is carved on the side of the boulder away from the path, so you have to get to the "far" side to see it.
There are no clues about when it was carved, but it might have been carved by men working at the millstone quarries near Deer Gallows.
