Mellbreak

There are three summits on Mellbreak, the accepted top being the southern and highest one. Birkett names them North Top of Mellbreak, South Top of Mellbreak and a further, smaller promontory to the south named Scale Knott. The correct spelling is with a single 'l' (Melbreak) but it is always spelt with two on the OS map.
