And there's also an 'ƗB' in Stoke Sough.
Depending on the context etc. could it be an apotropaic witch mark?

No, they're miner's initials - there are far too many examples of initals that don't fall within the pattern of ones that get identified as witch marks, and although I've seen "MM" underground I've also seen several examples in 18th century mine records of miners who have those initials, for example Matthew Mycock for this neck of the woods. Putting Occam's Razor on to the matter, miners initials is the explanation with fewer assumptions.

Whitbarrow escarpment far left and Arnside Knott centre. Loadsa limestone, not many caves or people.

Wave next time you are out, you can see my daily walk  ;)

It's worth going there on a really wet day to see the waterfall.

I think most of us would agree there's something really special about limestone scenery.

Are you (and your 4 legged companion) available for shuttle services from the road up there? :lol:

Having escaped for a couple of days I found myself exploring this area after seeing the photo some months ago. I was surprised how clean and polished the rocks are at the base of the cataract. I originally assumed water flowing over must be a rare occurrence but the evidence suggests otherwise. Any idea how often it happens? 3 or 4 times a year?

 Them not lonely in the peak.
Looked like  a 200 legged centipede heading up coombes dale.
Many other legs getting changed by their cars too. >:(
