 Record Name Boulder decorated with several cup and multiple concentric rings, cup marks and multiple rings.
 Record Description Isolated cup and ring marked boulder found by the present recorder near the glacial mound named Silver Hill.Silver Hill is one of several barrow mounds and several very distinctive barrow shaped mounds of natural glacial origine (drumlins),like Hill 99 on the Feldom Army Ranges on Gayles Moor some 2km to the northwest,which have all been the focus of rock art. These mounds all overlook the Tees Lowlands and the rock art may relate to transhumant occupation of the southern edge of the Tees Valley by Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age Groups whose year round settlenents are located on the light soils of the gravel river terraces close to Tees and Swale where extensive lithic finds point to contemporary occupation.
