Cup and ring marked rock 430m north of Morwick Hall - List Entry

  • Description

    "....The cup and ring marked rock north of Morwick Hall is well preserved and displays a range of motifs including spirals, the rarest symbol found on incised rocks and only known at one other site in Northumberland, at Lilburn. The site is also unusual in that the designs are incised on the vertical cliff face. It will contribute to our understanding of prehistoric rock art in England.....The monument includes an incised rock called Jack Rock situated above the River Coquet 430m north of Morwick Hall. The rock is one of two sandstone cliffs, 10m to 15m high, rising from the river within 150m of each other on opposite banks of the Coquet. Jack Rock is on the south bank and is inscribed on its north face with spirals and cup marks pecked out of the natural surface...."
