Transcriber's notes

Check Various modes of Spelling for Hesket Hill - it was originally written Heskethill and the presumed modification to Hesket Hill is not that clear.

Descriptive Remarks - Breckonrie Glen - The last sentence appears separate at the bottom of the page after the Bluntfield Entry with an arrow pointing to it. It appears in the Descriptive Remarks column, so I have treated it as a continuation rather than as a separate note/extra info. Some letters in this sentence are also missing in the page fold.
