Walked up from Horton-in-Ribblesdale station. FBM taller than most and seemingly popular place for cows to use as toilet. On T:UK at http://trigpointing.uk/trig/516. Got soaked on way back to station. Photo showing the mark at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/5108542 with wider view at http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/5108565
