Gallows Outon Spiral.....revealed.
Hi Folks, Just to let you know that the spiral at Gallows Outon has showed itself this past weekend. It has been the one carving i have wanted to see since i started getting the rock art bug... The carving looks as special as i thought it would do, after seeing it in the Ronald Morris book,(my first rock art book bought just after i got the bug..). I had to move alot of cow muck to get to this carving, i was left smelly etc, but it was worth it.( I am sure Suzanne has some pics of me shovelling the sh*t*..). Another interesting thing was the 3 sets of carved initials found just up from the carvng...seems like it was something the old antiquarians did. It was also interesting to visit St Ninians cave just after Gallows Outon, and to find a small carving very similar to the spiral at Gallows was a little spooky..
