Ennerdale and Kinniside
parish, once in Cumberland
Samuel Taylor Coleridge, in his notebook for 12 November
1799, says that:-
This man's [Jerome Bowman's] son, broke his neck by falling off a crag. Supposed to have lain down and slept, but walked in his sleep and so came to the crag. This was at Proud Knott on the mountain called Pillar up Ennerdale. His pike staff stuck midway and stayed there till it rotted away.
