I came across the following reference on the Keys to the Past website and wonder if any one has any information on this site. Mr Hob tells me that the site doesn’t appear on the MAGIC Map and I can’t find a refererence to it in the Beckensall Archive.
It all sounds rather tasty and I wouldn’t mind having a mooch up there but as a few of you may know, some of the western sites on the Durham SMR are a little, perhaps, over-enthusiastically described.
“Bowlees, Carr Crags; prehistoric ritual site.This unusual monument was probably a religious site in the late Neolithic or early Bronze Age (2500BC to 2000BC). There is a group of rocks arranged in a “keyhole” shape and carved with large cup marks. A huge stone block lies in the centre. There are over 21 rocks, with over 300 cup marks carved into them. Little is known about this site, and there are no others like it in the North East. “
