KETTLENESS MYSTERY CARVINGS

This large stone lies in sand at the foot of the cliff at Kettleness. All along its spine it has carvings of South Seas style faces. When, why and by whom remains a mystery.





The colour and exposure of the images has been altered to bring out the characteristics of the carvings.

Hello there! I've been enjoying your blog for a while, silently, but now I have to ask a question... When were those carvings first discovered? That's quite fascinating! Cheers!

Hello Marnie.

I found these carvings at the foot of a cliff at Kettleness, a few miles north of Whitby on the north east coast of England on July 2nd, 2010.

I have no idea where they're from, I can't find any information on them at all, but somebody must know.

Thanks for reading the blog, and thanks for breaking your silence!

how interesting! i wonder if they are a modern tribute to the ways of old or a genuine old carving?
