Moor Divock (pass)

 


Although this route is quite short, quite easy and quite close to three villages, you can't help but feel isolated as you cross this lonely stretch of moorland. I'm not sure how long this particular route has been in use but man has certainly been in the area since the Bronze Age. Alongside the path are several remains from this time, the most notable being The Cockpit stone circle along with several smaller stone circles and ancient cairns. Most of which are rather hard to find in a landscape with very few prominent landmarks.

This may not be most peoples idea of good fell walking, but for anyone who relishes wide open space and the prospect of a little seclusion, this is a wonderful area to walk.
