King Pocky and The Bowder Stone

The Bowder Stone is a huge cubic lump of volcanic rock standing on an edge, weighing in at over 2,000 tonnes. A stairway has been erected to assist climbers to the top.

During the end of the 1700's a rich eccentric resident of Keswick called King Pocky (Joseph Pocklington) built a Chapel  and erected a Druid's monolith next to the stone, he also cut a hole in the base through which to shake hands with visitors.
