I think Terry was operating more with NCC folk by the 80s. They did some good work in the area but I wasn't aware that Pikedaw was one of the sites actually tested.

Be great if someone did come forward on here and tell us they have tested Pikedaw properly but no-one did when I asked the question previously.

There was a test attempted a considerable number of years ago but the dye got stuck in the pool it was placed in and was there for a very long time. There is water sinking away in other parts of Pikedaw; careful choice of injection point would be of value.

But to return more to topic, the depth potential here is certainly well over 300 m.

As the limestone extends right though to Coniston Cold ,are Air Head Springs the lowest point ?
What about the Lake at Coniston Hall ?What feeds that ,I am assuming it is spring fed and not
stream fed .
