NY9725 : Moorland near Gaping Stone

taken 7 years ago, near to Mickleton, County Durham, Great Britain

Moorland near Gaping Stone
Moorland near Gaping Stone
The disturbed heather moorland in this image lies to the south of a feature marked on OS Explorer OL31 as 'Gaping Stone'. At the time of the visit it was thought that this could be the Gaping Stone, (even though no stone was apparent), but the location, (assessed by GPS receiver), was later seen to be south of the supposed stone.
The distant rise is the west side of Eggleston Moor which lies beyond the valley of the Eggleston Burn.
(Note: The vicinity of the Stone was explored in a little more than a cursory inspection but no rock was seen; if it's (still) there it must be small!)
