In open moorland 100 m W of (NR89SW 3) there is a rock-sheet, flush with the surface of the ground, on which there is a complex series of markings, the most distinctive of which are a number of conjoined multiple-ringed cups. Six of these are surrounded by four rings, one by three rings, seven by two rings, and eight by single rings; several of the ringed cups have gutters. In addition, there are at least fifteen plain cups and stretches of wandering grooves. An unusual mark lies at bottom right of the outcrop; it is badly weathered, but appears to comprise a broad shallow cup surrounded by a single ring which is linked to the cup by a series of rays (Morris 1977).
