003; 004; 009; 010 Continued - Again in page 113 it states "Along each side of the Whiteadder, a fertile haugh Stretches for upwards of a quarter of a mile; beyond which the hills that wall in the valley rise on all sides with Considerable Steepness. The ground on the North side of the vale rises abruptly from the haugh, & presents a bank finely covered with natural Wood. The slope which forms the south side of the vale is Cultivated to a Considerable height, & portions of it are planted with Larch & Scotch fir, intermingled with Elm, the Oak & the Ash; but still rising higher as it recedes, it at last presents nothing but its natural Covering of heath. At each end of the valley, besides the opening by which it receives & transmits the Whiteadder, there opens a beautiful dell from the North-Westward, with its appropriate brook. These romantic objects, joined with its attractions connected with human life, render this vale, although Sequestered, a Cheerful & pleasant habitation".
