Hi nik. Are these naturally "carved" or cut out by human hands. There were many of these, both natural and hand carved, in the Peak District, near where I used to live - Jim on August 20, 2010

Hi Jim, I know the canal is carved but I am not sure about the bowl it looked natural to me. I visited this place 8 years ago for my birthday and I didn't have much information on this time. Do you have any picture of yours? :-) nik

Hi nik. No I'm afraid I never took photos of these sort of formations, but I've just found this website with some examples:

And this Panoramio photo shows the site I originally mentioned where there was a mixture of natural bowls and more shallow carved ones:

Also there is the "Druids Stone" which has a similar carved canal to yours, to drain the bowl:
