I just wondered if by reconstruction you meant it was "recreated" using non-original stones and did climbers over the ages cause the original knocking down. I would've thought that the renovators would've noticed rock-art especially if it is such a rarity in the area. BTW you should've voiced your opinion at the "disrespect" at the time even though you didn't feel it was harming the (reconstructed)stones, your associates might've had a little respect for your feelings and not investigated the stone quite as thoroughly in your presence.

It was feared that the setting of the north east upright was slumping. Arthur Passmore (A.D. Passmore) oversaw this concreting work in 1921-2, it cost £55 15s 1d (weird amount!) the cash was raised by subscription.
