MOOR DIVOCK 20A - White Raise Cairn
White Raise Cairn on Moor Divock, Askham Fell, near Pooley Bridge in the Lake District, Cumbria, UK.
White Raise Cairn is a partly mutilated Bronze Age burial site, once covered by a heap of stones. On top of the cairn is an open rectangular cist (stone grave) with the displaced stone capping slab nearby. When opened, this grave was found to contain a crouched adult skeleton. The cairn is situated upon an alignment of several funerary monuments stretching for over 1.5km along the natural communication route over the fell.
