Question about Stanage Edge


Recommended Posts

As I was walking along from Moscar this weekend, I noticed that there are what look like casts for molten metal (?!) cut into some stones. They all have engraved numbers by them as well, I found number 14, then every 50 metres or so I saw 13, 12, 11 and 10. Does anyone know what they are?

I was told by a reliable person that they were some sort of way of collecting drinking water for the grouse and were made by gamekeepers many a moon ago. If you notice there is a chanel to collect and direct the water into the 'cup'

 

That or he was pulling my £$@)&*! and I have just made a fool of myself :?
