The Ordnance Survey 1:25K and 1:50K maps name this top as Lang How but, as you'll see on our map, their Opendata mapping calls in Lang Lowe. The same difference applies to Great Castle How and Little Castle How to the north west but curiously all three maps use the "Howe" spelling for Looking Howe.
