The valley through which the river Mite runs is called Miterdale. The name Mite is thought to be of British origin & related to a root such as meigh to urinate or dribble possibly a wry reflection of the relatively minor nature of the Mite. The Mite rises on Tongue Moor, immediately below the peak of Illgill Head to the north west, at an altitude of around 550 metres. After coalescing into a stream the upper Mite runs over the waterfalls of Miterdale Head & descends into the narrow but steep sided upper Miterdale valley. It then flows to the south west past the Bakerstead outdoor pursuit centre, the village Eskdale Green to the north of Muncaster Fell & Muncaster Mill. Finally the River Mite meets the River Esk & River Irt at the esturine confluence of the 3 near the ancient village of Ravenglass on the Cumbrian coast. The river runs parallel to the Ravenglass & Eskdale steam railway & 1 of their locomotives is named after it. DONT FORGET TO LET THEM KNOW WHERE YOU FOUND THEM www.carpinfo.co.uk
