If the weather is calm and fine, he has a boat, to which he must walk across the meadows. As soon as he is afloat, the beauties of Ullswater open upon him,- the great Place Fell occupying the whole space to the right; and Stybarrow Crag, precipitous and wooded, shoots up on the left-hand bank. The road winds below it, under trees, passing good houses, and the paths to Helvellyn, and to the lead works, and to

Ullswater has two bends, and is shaped like a relaxed Z. At the first bend, the boat draws to shore, below Lyulph's Tower, ... The park which surrounds it, and stretches down to the lake, is studded with ancient trees; and the sides of its watercourses, and the depths of its ravines, are luxuriantly wooded. Vast hills, with climbing tracks, rise behind, on which the herds of deer are occasionally seen, like brown shadows from the clouds. ...

He returns the way he came, by boat, to the inn, and, after dinner up Kirkstone Pass. He will hear and see enough to make him wish to come again, and stay awhile on Ullswater. He would like to walk along Place Fell, above the margin of the lake, where no carriage road is or can be made; and, once there, he would certainly climb the mountain. He would like to enter the bridle road, from the foot of the lake, which leads to Grisedale tarn, and comes out above Grasmere. He would like to visit Angle Tarn, on the southern end of Place Fell; and, yet more, Hays Water, ... Our traveller must, however, come again to see it; for there is no time to diverge to it to-day.

ULLES WATER
Is the largest lake, next to Windermere, in the district, being nine miles in length and one in breadth. Its average depth is from twenty to thirty-five fathoms; and its waters abound in excellent trout, and are crowded with shoals of skellies, a kind of fresh-water herring: a few char are also found in the lake, and great quantities of eels are taken in the Eamont, as they migrate from the lake in autumn. The principal feeders are Grisedale Beck, overflowing from a large tarn, high up between Seat-Sandal and Helvellyn, and Goldrill Beck, whose waters are the united streams that pour out of Blea and Angle Tarns. The water is of a zig-zag form, running as it were into the mountains, the hill-sides plentifully covered with wood, and rich meadows lying at its foot. It consists of three reaches: the first or lowest, three miles in length, has pretty sloping banks; the view up this has, in front, Hallin Fell, with Swarth Fell on the left, and on the right, the sweetly-situated villas of Rampsbeck, Beauthorn, Lemon Hall, and the white hamlet of Watermillock. The second reach is four miles long, having the huge Helvellyn
Page 144:-
rearing his crested form in front, with Hallsteads on the long low promontory, round which the lake doubles - the woods of Gowbarrow adorning the right - and on the left, Hallin, Birk, and Place Fells. The highest and last reach is two miles long, spotted with a few rocky islands of small importance. The steep and rugged front of Place Fell forms its left boundary, and the precipitous rocks of Stybarrow, oaken-crowned, start up out of the waters on the right, the crags of St. Sunday, Helvellyn, and Fairfield, forming the towering distance.
On the whole, this water generally stands confessed the most beautiful and grandest of all, affording the greatest variety of views, in which, however, the sublime unquestionably preponderates.
In advancing up Ulles Water, we should recommend the south or Westmorland side of the shore to be taken as far as How Town, where a boat should be in readiness to carry you across to Old Church, Watermillock, inasmuch as the views are incomparably finer, both with regard to the foregrounds and the combinations of the distance.
Page 145:-
This side cannot be pursued to Patterdale but by pedestrians, who after leaving How Town, penetrate into Martindale, a sequestered spot shut out from the lake; ... A green path leads to the top of the western ridge, whence there is a view of the last reach of Ulles Water, bordered by black steeps - the narrow grassy vale of Bordale immediately beneath - Penrith beyond - and Cross Fell in the extreme verge of the horizon. In passing down to Patterdale, several beautiful views are presented of that dale and of Brother Water, with the heights of Kirkstone.
The carriage-road leads from Pooley Bridge, on the Cumberland side, along the first reach, which is comparatively speaking tame, having Soulby Fell, a smooth green hill, on the right. Near the pleasant village of Watermillock, stood the old church, in a very sequestered bay; ... At the extremity of the church promontory stands Hallsteads, the modern residence of J. Marshall, Esq. Immediately after passing this, on the left, you enter
Page 146:-
into the grounds of Gowbarrow Hall; and then the Park, in which is situated Lyulph's Tower, ...
...
Page 147:-
... [on the Dowthwaite Head road] ... On the hill-top there is a magnificent view of the two upper reaches of the lake, having on the left, Silvery Point and Place Fell, the steeps of Glenridding, with Stybarrow Crags and Patterdale Hall; and beyond, the mountains of Graysdale and Hartshope, Scandale Fell, and St. Sunday Crag. Proceeding onwards, on the right, lurking in a recess, is Glencoin, a farm-house belonging to Henry Howard, Esq., in a rich cultivated bottom, with high and splendidly-wooded mountains in the back-ground: the stream here divides the counties of Cumberland and Westmorland. Hence the road ascends, and is cut through the crags of Stybarrow, from which there is a Claude-like view towards the foot of the water. On a grassy promontory stands Glenridding, the seat of the Rev. H. Askew; the dale opening upwards to the right, is adorned with fertile fields, cottages, and natural groves, that agreeably unite with the view of Ulles Water. ...
Page 148:-
...
On the right is Patterdale Hall, the former residence of the kings of Patterdale, but now belonging to W. Marshall, Esq., M.P. for Carlisle. The stream that rushes down across the road, flows out of Graysdale Tarn, through a moist green dale, with one single house embosomed in sycamores.
Patterdale chapel stands on one side of the road, ...
A little further is the excellent inn, where every accommodation may be had for viewing this sublime nucleus of dales, and where a day or two should be spent for such a purpose. The water should be navigated, the recesses of the dales explored, and Helvellyn ascended. No one, not even the transitory visitor, should omit to walk to Blowick, which may be done while dinner is preparing. It has still
Page 149:-
its land-locked bays, and its rocky promontories, though deprived of all its wood - thus displaying all its charms at once, instead of unfolding them in delightful succession.

ULLSWATER
Ranks next in point of size, being nine miles long, but rather wanting in breadth: yet, on account of its winding form, the disproportion is not so much observed. It has the greatest average depth of any of the lakes, being in many places from 20 to 35 fathoms. The country about its foot is rather tame; but its head is situated among some of the most majestic mountains, which are intersected by several glens or small vallies; and their sides embellished with a variety of native wood and rock scenery.
Three rocky islets ornament the upper reach of the lake; they are called Cherry-Holm, Wall-Holm, and House-Holm; the last of which, though houseless, is a fine station for viewing the surrounding scenery.- This lake abounds with trout which are sometimes caught of very large size; here are also some char, but they are neither numerous nor of the best quality. Large shoals of a peculiar kind of fish are met with, called here the skelly; and great quantities of eels are taken in the river Eamont, below Pooley Bridge, as they migrate from the lake in autumn. At the foot of the lake, the water seems to be embanked by a conglomerated mass of pebbles; ... The borders of the lake are ornamented with several handsome villas. ...

The only carriage road lies on the north-west side of the water, sometimes on a level with its surface and commanding an unobstructed view; at other times deeply shaded in ancient woods, permitting only occasional glimpses of the lake; but on the opposite side the pedestrian will be well repaid for a ramble along Placefell and Birkfell. From the slate quarry on Placefell there is a grand view of the mountains, just including the highest point of Helvellyn; and from many parts of the path the views are truly picturesque. If the tourist aspires to more extensive prospects, they may be attained by climbing the mountain to a certain height; where

the lower extremity of the lake may be seen over the beautiful grounds of Hallsteads.
This lake, like others, is most advantageously seen by commencing at its foot; so that, whether by the road, or in a boat, the grandeur of the scenery is continually increasing as the traveller approaches the mountains; but the views from the lake are more open, and the water itself appears more spacious, from the boat on its surface, than from any elevation above it.
There is a comfortable inn at Pooley Bridge, on the foot of the lake; an another at Patterdale, a little distance from its head. They both furnish boats upon the lake: and the long wanted medium of land conveyance is now in part supplied;- horses and jaunting cars can be had at Pooley Bridge; and a post chaise and horses at Patterdale.

Ullswater may be visited from Penrith, going either by Eamont Bridge and Tirrel, or by Dalemain, to the Inn at Pooley Bridge; with carriages the former road is generally preferred.
POOLEY BRIDGE is a desirable station for the lovers of angling; or to take a boat for viewing the scenery of Ullswater. ...

THE UPPER END OF ULLSWATER.
ULLSWATER lies to the east of Derwentwater and to the north of Winandermere. It is size one of the most considerable of the lakes, being in length about eight miles, though it's greatest breadth does not exceed one. It's direction like that of all the others is north and south. In point of beauty is by many thought not inferior to any of them: In one respect it certainly has the superiority, viz. in affording the greatest variety. This advantage it derives from it's shape, which nearly resembles that of the letter Z, but without it's angular sharpness. It is of course separated into three distinct reaches, winding at every turn round some bold projection of the surrounding mountains. This plate presents a prospect of the upper division looking down the lake, as viewed from the skirts of Martindale-fell. The rivulet which serpentizes through the meadows is called Goldrill-beck, and is one of the principal feeders of the lake; it descends from Kirkston-fell, which forms the barrier between Winandermere and Ullswater. This is the only division of the lake, which is adorned with islands.

THE LOWER END OF ULLSWATER.
THIS plate gives a view of the lowest each of Ullswater. It is of a very different character from the other two divisions. Those appear to the eye compleatly environed by impending mountains, whereas this, if Dunmallet were removed, would lie entirely open to the adjacent country. Dunmallet is a hill of a regular conic form, of no great height, and somewhat formally planted with wood. On it's top are the vestiges of a Roman fortress, well adapted, like that on Castle-crag, at the head of Derwentwater, to command all the avenues of the country. The view is taken near a farm-house called Bowerbank overlooking the village of Pooley which stands upon the outlet of the lake. The river here takes the name of Emont and after a course of eight or ten miles falls into the Eden. The wood rising on the right of the fore-ground is part of Dunmallet. In the first distance near the center appears Watermellock, the habitation of Mr. Robinson, charmingly situated upon an eminence. The hills on the left are Place-fell, &c. In the most remote distance rises Helvellyn which disputes pre-eminence in respect of altitude with Skiddaw and Cross-fell.

[at Pooley Bridge] ... As the beauties of the Lake can no otherwise be seen to perfection, we must here embark for that delightful expedition: this we may do either in one of the boats kept by Edward Richardson, at the sign of the Sun, or in that with which the Earl of Surrey politely gives leave to his keeper to accommodate any gentleman who desires it. Richardson's boats are neat and in good repair, but his Lordship's is truly worthy its noble owner. It is adapted for eight rowers, (for whom there are likewise caps and shirts,) and mounts twelve brass swivel guns, for the purpose of trying the echoes: the pay of the rowers here is 2s. a day for each man, and they are always provided with ammunition for the guns.
... It will also much enhance the pleasure, if they previously send notice to the fishermen at How-Town, or Water-Millock, to prepare their boats and nets; so that at their return, which will be about five hours, they may see the manner of taking the different kinds of fish. The price of these fishermen is three draughts for five shillings, and the fish they take is the property of their employers. Those who are fond of angling will do well to take their tackle with them, as perhaps they can no where meet with better sport. I one day caught, in this manner, between Powley and the small island, twenty-nine trouts.

But this is denied by some, who assert that Ulpha, or Ulphus, had this honour, and that the name of Ulswater is merely a contraction of Ulphus-Water. To me it scarce appears credible that ever this Lake had only one owner, and of course, that it had its name on some other account, though perhaps it might be Wolfs-Water, as the deep woods, and almost inaccessible mountains on the banks of the Lake, would undoubtedly afford a safe asylum to these animals.

This plan of Ulleswater, like the others, is not very exact; but enough so, to give an idea of it's general shape, and the relative situation of the several places on it's shores.
vol.2 p.51
... and Ulleswater may all be called boundary-lakes. One end of each participates more of the rugged country; and the other of the cultivated: tho each end participates, in some degree, of both. A few traits of romantic scenery are added to the tameness of one end; while the native horror of the other is softened by a few chearful appendages.
The form of Ulleswater resembles a Z; only there is no angular acuteness in it's line. It spreads every where in an easy curve; beautifully broken in some parts by promontories.- The middle reach contains in length near two thirds of the lake. The southern side is mountainous; and becomes more so, as it verges towards the west. As the mountains approach the north, they glide (as we have see is usual in boundary-lakes) into meadows
vol.2 p.52
and pastures. The northern end and western sides contain a great variety of woody and rocky scenes; but these also, as they approach the east, become smooth and fertilized. At the southern point, under impending mountains, lies the village of Patterdale.- With this general idea of Ulleswater, let us return to the descent from Matterdale, where we caught the first view of it.
As we descended a little further, the whole scene of the lake opened before us; and such a scene, as almost drew from us the apostrophe of the inraptured bard,
Among all the visions of this inchanting country, we had seen nothing so beautifully sublime, so correctly picturesque as this.- And yet I am averse to make comparisons; especially on seeing a country but once. Much depends on the circumstances of light, and weather. I would wish therefore only to say, that I was more pleased with Ulleswater, than with any lake I had seen; adding, at the same time, that we were fortunate in a concurrence
vol.2 p.53
of incidents, that aided it's beauty. We had hitherto seen all the lakes we had visited, under a rough, or cloudy sky: and tho their dignity was certainly increased by that circumstance; yet the beauty of a lake in splendid, serene weather, aided, at this time, by the powers of contrast, made a wonderful impression on the imagination.
"The effect of the sublime, Mr. Burke informs us, is astonishment; and the effect of beauty, is pleasure: but when the two ingredients mix, the effect, he says, is in a good measure destroyed in both. They constitute a species something different both from the sublime and beautiful, which I have before called fine: but this kind, I imagine, has not such a power on the passions, either as vast bodies have, which are endowed with the correspondent qualities of the sublime; or as the qualities of beauty have, when united in a small object. The affection produced by large bodies, adorned with the spoils of beauty, is a tention conti-
vol.2 p.54
[conti]nually relieved; which approaches to the nature of mediocrity &*RECORD_TYPE part record #x002A;."
This refined reasoning does not seem intirely grounded on experience.- I do not remember any scene in which beauty and sublimity, according to my ideas, are more blended than in this: and tho Mr. Burke's ideas of beauty are perhaps more exceptionable, than his ideas of the sublime; yet it happens, that most of the qualities, which he predicates of both, unite also in this scene. Their effect therefore, according to his argument, should be destroyed. But the feelings of every lover of nature, on viewing these scenes, I dare be bold to say, would revolt from such reasoning.

turn off to the right (leaving Mell-fell, a round green hill, on the left) to Matterdale, and proceed to Gowbarrow-park, which will bring them upon Ulls-water, about the middle part of it, where it is seen to great advantage. But here it must be observed, that some of the principal beauties of the lake, and the sweetest pastoral scenes, are entirely lost by this route. Dunmallet, the greatest ornament of the lake, with the whole of the first great bend, cannot here be seen, and much of the dignity of the lake is thereby lost. It is therefore better to ride to the gate on the right, that leads to Dacre, and over Dacre-common, to the foot of Dunmallet. By this course, every part of the lake will be viewed to the greatest advantage.
Mr. Gray's choice of visiting this lake, was from Penrith, up the vale of Emont. 'A grey autumnal day,' he writes, 'went to see Ullswater, five miles distant; soon left Keswick road, and turned to the left, through shady lanes, along the vale of Emont, which runs rapidly on near the way, rippling over the stones; to the right, Dalemain, a large fabric of pale red stone, with nine windows in front, and seven on the side.

gained the summit. From hence, saw the lake opening directly at my feet, majestic in calmness, clear and smooth as a blue mirror, with winding shores, and low points of land, covered with green inclosures, white farm houses looking out among the trees, and cattle feeding. The water is almost everywhere bordered with cultivated lands, gently sloping upwards, from a mile to a quarter of a mile in breadth, till they reach the feet of the mountains, which rise very rude and awful, with their broken tops, on each hand. Directly in front, at better than three miles distance, Place-fell, one of the bravest among them, pushes its bold breast into the midst of the lake, and forces it to alter its course, forming first a large bay to the left, and then bending to the right. Descended Dunmallet by a side avenue, only not perpendicular and came to Barton-bridge, over the Emont. Then walked through a path in the wood, round the bottom of the hill, came forth where the Emont issues out of the lake, and continued my way along the western shore, close to the water, and generally on a level with it; it is nine miles long, and at the widest, under a mile in breadth. After extending itself three miles and a half, in a line to the south-west, it turns at the foot of Place-fell, almost due west, and is here not twice the breadth of the Thames at London. It is soon again interrupted by the root of

Helvellyn, a lofty and very rugged mountain, and spreading again, turns off to the south-east, and is lost among the deep recesses of hills. To this second turning I pursued my way, about four miles along its borders, beyond a village scattered among trees, and called Watermillock.' Here Mr. Gray leaves us, and the greatest part of the lake unseen, and its most picturesque parts undescribed. For the last bend of the lake is spotted with rocky isles, deeply indented with wooded promontories on one side, and rocks on the other, from which result many a truly pleasing picture.

Page 155:-
Opposite to Watermillock, a cataract descends down the front of Swarth-fell, in Martindale-forest. At Skelling-nab, a bold promontory, the lake is contracted to a span, but it soon spreads itself again both ways, forming a variety of sweet bays and promontories. After a reach of three miles, it winds with a grand sweep round the smooth breast of Place-fell, and making a turn directly south, advances with equal breadth towards Patterdale. The western shore is various. Drawing near the second bend, the mountains strangely intersect each other. Behind many wooded hills rises Stonecross-pike, and over all, steep Helvellyn shows his sovereign head. On the western side, Yew-crag, a noble pile of rock, fronts Place-fell, where its streams tumble in a cataract to the lake. Gowbarrow-park opens with a grand amphitheatre of shining rock, the floor of which is spread with soft green pasture, once shaded with ancient oaks, to which many decayed roots bear witness, Scattered thorns, trees, and bushes vary the ground, which is pastured with flocks, herds of cattle, and fallow deer. The road winds along the margin of the lake, and at every turn presents the finest scenes that can be imagined. At the upper end of Gowbarrow-park, the last bend of the lake, which is by much the finest, opens, scattered with small rocky islands. The shores are bold, rocky, wooded, and much embayed.

The upper end terminates in sweet meadows, surrounded to the right by towering rocky hills, broken and wooded. Martindale fell is the opposite boundary, skirted here with hanging inclosures, cots, and farms.
The principal feeders of this lake are Grysdale-beck, on the western corner, and Goldrill-beck, which descends from Kirkston-fell. They enter it in a freer manner than the feeder of Derwent does, and make a much finer appearance at their junction.

other fish. Trout of thirty pounds weight and upwards, are said to be taken in it.
The water of the lake is very clear, but has nothing of the transparency of Derwent, and is inferior to Buttermere and Cromack-water also in this respect. The stones in the bottom, and along the shores, are coated with mud.
Mr. Gray viewed this lake in the same manner as that at Keswick, proceeding along its banks, and facing the mountains, judging that the idea of magnitude and magnificence were thereby increased, and the whole set off with every advantage of foreground. But this lake viewed from any height, except Dunmallet, also loses much of its dignity, as a lake, from the number of its flexures, and jutting out of promontories; it nevertheless retains the appearance of a magnificent river ingulphed in rocks.
The bold winding hills, the intersecting mountains, the pyramidal cliffs, the bulging, broken, rugged rocks, the hanging woods, and the tumbling, roaring cataracts, are parts of the sublimer scenes presented in this surprising vale. The cultivated spots wave upward from the water in beautiful slopes, intersected by hedges, decorated with trees, in the most pleasing manner; mansions,

cottages, and farms, placed in the sweetest situations, are the rural parts, and altogether form the most delightful and charming scenes. The accompaniments of this lake are disposed in the most picturesque order, bending round its margins, and spreading upwards in craggy rocks and mountains, irregular in outline; yet they are certainly much inferior in sublimity and horrible grandeur, to the environs of Keswick, and the dreadful rocks of Borrowdale. But in this opinion we have Mr. Cumberland against us, who, having visited the other lakes in dark unfavourable weather, when nothing could be seen besides weeping rocks, flooded roads, and watery plains, darkened by sable clouds that hovered over them, and concealed their variegated shores,- entertained an unfavourable idea of them; and being more fortunate in a fine day, in that part of the tour, where he visited Ulls-water, he attuned his lyre in honour of this enchanting lake, and sung its charms not only in preference to Windermere, Grasmere, and the vale of Keswick, but he also raises it above the pride of Lomond, and the marvellous Killarney.

for this view, when the sun, beaming forth, blessed him with a full display of all the beauties of this enchanting lake. In gratitude for so special a favour, in a true poetic rapture, he dedicates this ode to the God of Day, and commemorates his partiality to the lake of Patterdale, in the following harmonious numbers:

   But see! the embattled vapours break, Disperse and fly, / Posting like couriers down the sky; / The grey rock glitters in the glassy lake:-- / And now the mountain tops are seen / Frowning amidst the blue serene; / The variegated groves appear, / Deck'd in the colours of the waning year; / And as new beauties they unfold, / Dip their skirts in beaming gold. / Thee, savage Wyburn, now I hail, / Delicious Grasmere's calm retreat, / And stately Windermere I greet, / And Keswick's sweet fantastic vale:- / But let her naiads yield to thee, / and lowly bend the subject knee, / Imperial lake of Patrick's dale! / For neither Scottish Lomond's pride, / Nor smooth Killarney's silver tide, / Nor ought that learned Poussin drew, / Or dashing Rosa flung upon my view, / Shall shake thy sovereign undisturbed right, / Great scene of wonder and sublime delight!

Oct. 1. A grey autumnal day, the air perfectly calm, and mild, went to see Ulls-water, five miles distant [from Penrith]; ... From hence [Dunmallard Hill] saw the lake open directly at my feet, majestic in its calmness, clear and smooth as a blue mirror, with winding shores and low points of land covered with green inclosures, white farm houses looking out among the trees, and cattle feeding.- The water is almost everywhere bordered with cultivated lands, gently sloping upwards from a mile to a quarter of a mile in breadth, till they reach the feet of the mountains which rise very rude and awful with their broken tops on each hand. Directly in front, at better than three miles distance, Place-fell, one of the bravest among them, pushes its bold broad breast into the midst of the lake, and forces it to alter its course, forming first a large bay to the left, and then bending to the right. I descended Dunmallet ... came forth where the Eamont issues out of the lake, and continued my way along its western shore, close to the water, and generally on a level with it. Saw a cormorant flying over it and fishing. The figure of the lake nothing resembles that down

in our maps. It is nine miles long; and at the widest part it is under a mile in breadth. After extending itself three miles and a half to the south-west, it turns at the foot of Place-fell almost due west, and is here not twice the breadth of the Thames at London. It is soon again interrupted by the root of Helvellyn, a lofty and very rugged mountain, and spreading again, turns off to the south-east, and is lost among the deep recesses of the hills. To this second turning I pursued my way about four miles along its border, beyond a village scattered among trees, and called Watermillock, in a pleasant grave day, perfectly calm and warm, but without a gleam of sunshine; then the sky seemed to thicken and the valley to grow more desolate, and the evening drawing on, I returned by the way I came, to Penrith.

[1] This alludes to the great lake of Ulls-water, situate in Patterdale, i.e. Patrick's dale, a scene of grandeur and sublimity far superior, in my opinion, to the lake of Keswick.

... I call this a standing water as the other because its not like other great rivers as the Trent Severne Hull or Thames etc. to appear to run with a streame or current, but only as it rowles from side to side like waves as the wind moves it; its true at the end of this being a low fall of ground it runs off in a little streame; there is exceeding good fish here ...

Included in vol.2 opposite p.53 in Observations, Relative Chiefly to Picturesque Beauty, made in the year 1772.
The list of plates in the preface of the book has:-
XVIII. This print illustrates that kind of scenery, which is presented by Ulleswater. It is, by no means, a portrait: but it gives some idea of the view towards Patterdale, in which the rocky promontory on the left, and the two woody promontories on the right, are conspicuous features. Page 55.'
The text pp.54-57 has:-
... The foreground of the grand view before us, is a part of Gobray-park, which belongs to the duke of Norfolk: rough, broken, and woody. Among the old oaks, which inriched it, herds of deer, and cattle grazed in groups. Beyond this is spread an extensive reach of the lake, winding round a rocky promontory on the left; which is the point of a mountain, called Martindale-fell, or Place-fell: the southern boundary of the lake. This promontory uniting with the mountain, lets it easily down into the water, as by a step. An hesitation, if I may so call it, of this kind, eases greatly the heaviness of a line. In a distance, it is of less consequence: but in all the nearer grounds, it is necessary. ...
Martindale-fell is entirely unplanted; but it's line, and surface are both well varied. Numberless breaks (little vallies, and knolls) give it a lightness, without injuring it's simplicity.
Such was the disposition of the objects, on the left of the lake: on the right, two woody promontories, pursuing each other in perspective, made a beautiful contrast with the smooth continuity of Martindale-fell.
In front, the distance was composed of mountains, falling gently into the lake; near the edge of which lies the village of Patterdale.
We took this view at a point, which had just so much elevation, as to give variety to the lines of the lake. As we descended to the water, the view was still grand, and beautiful, but had lost some of it's more picturesque beauties: it had lost the foreground: it had lost the sweeping line round the mountain on the left: and it had lost the recess between the two woody promontories on the right. The whole margin of the lake was nearly reduced to one straight line.- The beauty of a view, especially in lake-scenery, we have before observed, depends greatly on the nice position of it's point.
Having spent some time in examining this very inchanting scene, we skirted the lake towards Patterdale, on a tolerable road, which runs from one end of it to the other: on the south it is continued to Ambleside; on the north to Penrith. I call it a tolerable road; but I mean only for horses. It has not the quartering an commodious width of a carriage road.
As we left Gobray-park, we took our rout along the margin of the first of those woody promontories on the right. We were carried by the side of the lake, through close lanes, and thick groves: yet not so thick, but that we had every where, through the openings of the trees, and windings of the road, views in front, and on the right, into woody recesses; some of which were very pleasing: and on the left, the lake, and all it's distant furniture, broke frequently upon us. ...
