... Judging from our own experience [Hutton Moor] ... we should say that this part of the journey is always broiling hot or bitterly cold. A bleak high-lying tract it certainly is, where the old monks no doubt suffered much and often in their expeditions. Their paternosters said among the perils of Ullswater, and their Ave Marys here are supposed to have given the names of Patterdale and Matterdale, which become more interesting as soon as their origin is known. ...

...
Patterdale belonged formerly to the barons of Kendale, one tenement excepted, which is now the property of John Mounsey, Esq; of Patterdale Hall. Accordingly we find in Hartsop Hall in Patterdale, the same armorial bearings as in Barton Church, viz. three stags heads, which Guillim says were the bearing of the name of Faldo, in the county of Kent. After some alienations by marriage, the manors of Pless-Fell in Patterdale, Barton, Griesdale, and Martindale, were purchased of Barbara and Anne, the daughters of the Earl of Sussex, by Sir William Musgrave. The whole Dale consists at present of five small manors; Hartsop, the property of the Earl of Lonsdale; Deep-Dale, of the Duke of Norfolk; Griesdale and Pless-Fell, of William Hassel, Esq; of Dalemain; and Glenridding, of John Mounsey, Esquire.
Patterdale is called in the Bishop's register Patrickdale, which is probably its proper name; the corruption being very easy, and the church being dedicated to St Patrick, makes it still more probable. A little below the Hall is a well called St Patrick's Well, ...

Patterdale, though now the poorest place that I am acquainted with, was once the seat of peace and plenty. Almost every man had a small freehold, whose annual produce, (though perhaps not equal to the daily expenditure of the rich and gay,) not only maintained him and his family in a comfortable manner, but even enabled many among them to amass small sums of money. The scene is now changed; vice and poverty sit pictured in almost every countenance, and the rustic fireside is no longer the abode of peace and contentment. The lamentable change took place about thirty years ago: at that time some lead mines wre (sic) wrought in this Dale, ...

Plate 12 from Views of the Lakes, &c, in Cumberland and Westmorland, published 1789; with descriptive text:-
PATTERDALE, from MARTINDALE-FELL.
THE View here represented is taken from the Edge of Martindale-Fell, looking over a Bay of the Lake, directly into Patterdale, where the Chapel and Palace are conspicuous. The Mountains seen in the Distance belong to the same Chain with Helvellyn. These Hills having their Summits sharp and pointed resemble more the Alpine Forms than any which are to be met with in this Country. It is worthy of Remark that in any one Range or System of Mountains a great Similarity of Outline generally prevails; the same Strata perhaps, by whatever Cause the Inequalities of the Earth's Surface might have been produced, naturally disposing themselves into the same or similar Forms.
