Swastika Stone (Replica), Ilkley Moor

The Swastika stone is one of the most elaborate and perhaps the best known of the ancient carved rocks on Ilkley Moor. This version is a Victorian replica which sits just in fromt of the real thing, which has much fainter markings, as seen on this image: www.flickr.com/photos/sgwarnog/7110588597/in/photostream

 

You can find out much more about it at the Northern Antiquarian: megalithix.wordpress.com/2008/07/25/swastika-stone-ilkley...
