...
About six o'clock, one morning in June, we set off from Kendal, and, after travelling about a dozen miles along a good turnpike-road, over Endmoor and Crowbrow, we arrived at Kirkby-Lonsdale soon after eight. About the mid-way we left the little steep white mountain, Farlton-knot, on the right about a mile. ... There were several good mansion-houses by the road side, which, at the beginning of last century, were inhabited by a substantial set of yeomanry and country gentlemen, the most useful members of a community: they are now, however, mostly let out to farmers: the desire of improving their fortunes in trade, or the pleasure of living in towns, have induced the owners to leave them - reverses of fortune, or new attachments, have caused many to sell them, after they had been continued many centuries in their families.
