Glenridding  Westmorland


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Glenridding like this:

GLENRIDDING, a mountain-vale, traversed by a rivulet, on the NW border of Westmoreland. The rivulet descends from Helvellyn; draws two head-streams from Red Tarn and Keppel-Cove Tarn; and runs 3½ miles eastward to Ulles water, about a mile NNW of Patter-dale Inn. The vale is overhung, on the S by Catche-decam, on the N, by Bleaberry-Fell and Stybarrow-Crag; and has, in a recess on its N side, the Greenside lead mines. Glenridding House, at its mouth, is the seat of the Rev. N. Askew.
