That'll be me. M and K are two sides of the same ilk whilst also on opposite sides.

The inhabitants may look warm and cosy on the surface but may be suffering from draughty conditions down below.

No, it's not items of clothing. Although the residents are (reputedly) known for wearing a certain item and eschewing another.

Are these figures on either side of a bridge (or other such structure)?

No and no.

M and K are locations within two different locations.

The residents of M and K have a saying (probably not of their making and probably not to their liking): AFCANN.

Is that "All fur coat and no knickers" misspelt? To confuse perhaps?😁
In that context I was thinking M might be Morningside but can't work out K.

Remember that M and K are two sides :wink: and both are part of larger but different locations.

You may well be right, see my interpretation of AFCANN, one of my mother's sayings substituting K for the last N.
