Moor Divock

Details

Moor Divock is 300 metres above sea level, forming part of Askham Fell, to the East of Ullswater. Dotted around the moor are many cairns and burial mounds, the most conspicuous being White Raise, near the junction of the trackway over the moor, and the path to Askham.
The Cockpit is by far the largest and most impressive of the Moor Divock circles, is about 1km to the west of the two smaller circles. It is likely that the stone circles and burial mounds belong to the bronze age. The cockpit consists of a low penannular bank of stones, 3 metres wide, and with an internal diameter of about 26m. Set into the bank are many large stones, the tallest of which form the inner face of the circle, some reaching up to 1 metre high.
