From the top of the hill in Leathes Park is a view of Armboth, which is situated on the other side of the lake; the sight is very unexpected, and exhibits a few cottages sheltered from the north, surrounded by fine rich cultivated plains, with the lake in front: at this sweet retirement lives Mr Jackson, who possesses the manor, which is small, but abounds in game; he likewise claims a right of navigation upon the lake.
