[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]
"THORP ARCH, a parish, 3 miles SE. of Wetherby, (see also Boston Spa in the
parish of Bramham in the West Riding of Yorkshire). Though situated
different divisions of the county, these two places are so closely connected
as to form only one village. The river Wharf runs with a rapid stream through
this delightful place, and the cascade seen through the arches of the bridge,
with the church and houses embosomed in wood, on the banks of the river,
afford a rich and varied landscape that can scarcely be excelled."
