Rock Basin on Gutter Tor

Record Number: 100190
Email - "Both the large basin and a smaller one to the right have drainage channels. The relatively small number of rock basins and their positioning suggest to me that they were places where fires were lit. The purpose of the drainage channels becomes obvious - it's difficult to light a fire in a bowl of water!"
