story A brass dish dating from 1417 was given to a daughter of this house when married to the King of Mardale. A servant was sent to get water from a well, and the witch of the well asked for food and drink in return for the water and a blessing on the wedding, and a dish. An inscription on the dish reads:-

The dish has ever since been kept with the farm.
