Justin Grammer writes: The picture on your website of one of the Moor Divock sites is without a doubt The Cockpit. The view is towards slightly East of North. The remains of the cairn on the Eastern side of the circle is quite obvious. This is an excellent photo. I have taken many pictures of the site from ground level, but none of them show up the cairn in the way that your aerial photo does. Excellent !!

Just out of interest, if you look at a plan or aerial photo of Castlerigg, you will see that the cist in this circle is located just South of East of the centre of the circle, as is the cairn at The Cockpit. Both circles are also of similar size. Castlerigg is about 30 metres from East to West, The Cockpit is 31 metres across. Allthough The Cockpit is probably early Bronze Age and the Carles is late Neolithic, the chances are that the cist at Castlerigg was added later and could actually be contemporary with the Moor Divock complex.

Thanks Justin!
