The Langdale Boulders at Copt Howe, Chapel Stile have recently been designated by English Heritage as an ancient monument of national importance, following the discovery of prehistoric 'cup and ring' markings. These consist of indentations and concentric circles, which date to about 2,500-5,000 years ago.
The site includes one of the most intricate and impressive examples of prehistoric rock art in Cumbria. The designs on the rocks, which were only discovered as late as 1999, are considered to date from the Neolithic or Bronze Age and consist of concentric circles, spirals and geometric designs arranged around a series of natural depressions in the rock. The exact meaning of the designs remain unknown, although some archeaologists believe they were created by people to help develop a sense of tenure, familiarity and belonging to the surrounding landscape.
I would like to have taken a picture of the art myself but rain stopped play so instead I've added a link for you to see an image I found online Rock Art image


My thanks once again to all who added encouragement by way of comments and votes on my previous offerings.

Lovely lead-in down the stone wall and through the gap in the trees to the Fells beyond. Well processed to bring out the detail as well.
