B5. Location Notes
The panel is located at the foot of a N-S field bank, facing E. The ground is higher to the W of the bank, and slopes upwards. Below (E of) the bank the grass slopes gently downwards to the gardens of some modern houses. The space between the bank and the houses (from which the panel is visible in the wall) is an urban green space used by children and dog walkers. There is a track along the top of the bank, and the panel is not visible from there.

C5. Panel Notes
The panel is approximately triangular, 1m at longest, rounded and set almost vertically in a stone built field bank about 1.5m high facing E. It is not possible to measure its depth. The rock is a hard medium grained schist with distinct cracks which divide the surface. There are 26 cups and 3 dumbbells One of the dumbbells has a faint ring around it, visible in the photogrammetry image.
NOTE: dumbbell with ring is not an option under Motifs, so has been provisionally shown as dumbbell
