The rain stone at Cow's Mouth Quarry near Littleborough, one of the Stanza Stones featuring a poem by Simon Armitage
Poet Simon Armitage has written 6 stanzas which have been carved into large stones in the landscape in West Yorkshire, forming a 47-mile trail. The poems are inspired by the language and landscape of the Pennine Watershed, and have been carved in situ by stone artist Pip Hall. The stones create a permanent poetry trail between Armitage's home town Marsden and Ilkley, where the literature festival is based which has partnered the project.
There is a seventh stanza in an unknown location, but the location of the rest of the stones can be found on a trail map which you can download here: http://www.ilkleyliteraturefestival.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Stanza-Stones-Trail-Guide.pdf
