This is a stone drinking trough most likely for the Hounds that would have hunted these hills and moorlands in days gone by. Now and again while out and about, miles from anywhere stonework of some kind can be found. What some of them are for is now to be guessed at, while others are troughs like this, way markers or pointers. There are some stones around here that I will get a picture of, that are supposed to have been used for bending bows.. The English at one time were renowned for our bow-men. More on this again, I can see a whole series of posts on these stones finds.
This as been my first month of showing off my pictures and what is to be found while I am out and about. I can not repay the time spent by all of you who visit and comment but I do thank you for your support. I look forward to my second month and hope to get pictures of what is going on at this time of the year in the woods and on the hill above them. I hope you can come back for more.
