Over 300 probable examples of rock-art from the prehistoric period have been identified on Rombalds Moor, West Yorkshire. Looking at the motifs and sites produced a database of 252 probably unmoved carved stones, and the views from and of these sites were examined. It is suggested that five of these sites, all large and unusually shaped, were identified as natural monuments, and referenced by carvings on much smaller sites from which they could be seen.
