Northumberland Rock Art

Web Access to the Beckensall Archive





This website is the celebration of rock carvings made by Neolithic and Early Bronze Age people in Northumberland in the north east of England, between 6000 and 3500 years ago. Over 1000 carved panels are known and most of them are still located in the countryside.

The website is also a celebration of the work of Stan Beckensall who has spent 40 years finding and recording this ancient rock art. For many years Beckensall shared his knowledge and recordings of Northumberland rock art through public talks, conference presentations, and richly illustrated publications. Now we have the World Wide Web!

It is our hope that the information and images presented in this website will encourage greater enjoyment of this cultural resource; inspire the creation of new knowledge and insights into Northumberland and British rock art; and set the basis for the effective management and conservation of this ancient resource for future generations.

If you have the pleasure of visiting Northumberland rock art, please treat it with respect as it cannot be renewed once it has been lost. The responsibility for caring for it rests with each one of us.

The ‘Web Access to Rock Art: the Beckensall Archive of Northumberland Rock Art’ project was funded by an AHRB Resource Enhancement Grant to the University of Newcastle.
