Swindale Beck, above Knock
This Swindale Beck rises at 700m at Swindale Head (NY724293) between Dufton Fell and Great Dun Fell in Westmoreland and flows down for 3.5 km to join Sink Beck at 300m near Knock Pike to form Howe Cauldron and then Knock Gill.
The lower reaches of Swindale Beck.
The Pennine Way follows the left bank of Swindale Beck on its way up to Knock Old Man and thence to Great Dun Fell.
As with the Swindale near Hilton and the two leading into Weasdale, there is no sign, nor likelihood, of human habitation, though the area of Howe Cauldron could have been a shieling.

I think this is the East Swindale or Esterswinsdale mentioned below, but if it is East Swindale then where is West Swindale - Shap?
