Moor Divock Stone Circles Cumbria
Welcome to the EDGE Guide to the stone circles of Cumbria.
Cockpit Stone Circle
Nearest Town: Penrith.
Location: NY 482222 (Cockpit), Sheet 90.
Moor Divock consists of three remaining circles in various states of disrepair, several cairns and possibly an opened burial chamber (this may in fact have been reconstructed for grouse shooters as a shooting butt).
Cockpit is the largest at approximately 34m wide.
The two smaller circles are known as Moor Divock 4 (approx' 7m diameter) and 5 (only a few stones remain together though several are scattered about, but it is difficult to gain a true impression of the circles true size and appearance).
The Moor Divock area is full of traces of Bronze Age habitation.
The Copstone and the Moor Divock circles are on the northern side of the footpath leading from the lane (where you can park your car) to the villages of Helton and Askham. Use your Ordnance Survey map Sheet 90.
