Wednesday’s survey began with the weather on our side for a change! Much sunnier and warmer we managed to walk the long sections to the east of the common and all around the back finishing on the west side. There were plenty of rocks to inspect but none of them were harbouring our sought-after rock art.
We did however, have an extended trek over the common to investigate a stone noticed on a previous walk by a volunteer. The large stone appeared to be inscribed with the letters ‘DUW’ the Welsh for God which makes this very interesting-according to locals there is allegedly another stone on the other side of the Valley inscribed with the word for Satan. For what reason we’re not currently sure of but it will make for some fascinating research!
