"HURTLEPOT, in the township of Ingleton, and parish of Thornton in Lonsdale, wapentake of Ewcross; 3 miles from Ingleton, 10 from Kirby Lonsdale, (Westm.) 13 from Settle.

Hurtlepot, in Chapel le dale, is a round deep Cavern, between thirty and forty yards in diameter, surrounded with rocks almost on all sides, between thirty and forty feet perpendicular, above a deep black water. Round the top of this horrid place are trees, which grow secure from the axe; their branches almost meet in the centre, and spread a gloom over a chasm dreadful enough of itself, without being heightened with additional appendages. Large black trout are frequently caught in the night by the neighbouring people. --Tour to the Caves."


"MASONGILL, a hamlet in the township and parish of Thornton in Lonsdale; 3 miles from Ingleton, 5 from Kirby Lonsdale."


"THEABER, a single house in the township of Burton in Lonsdale, and parish of Thornton in Lonsdale; 2½ miles NW. of Ingleton."

"WHAITBER, a single house in the township of Burton in Lonsdale, and parish of Thornton in Lonsdale; 3 miles from Ingleton."


"WHERNSIDE, in the parish of Thornton-in-Lonsdale, wapentake of Staincliffe. The situation of this mountain is about 4 miles N. of Ingleborough, in the midst of a vast amphitheatre of hills; and it is obvious to the eye that this mountain is higher than Ingleborough; in fact, it is the highest mountain in England or in Wales, and Mr. Houseman states its altitude at 4052 feet above the level of the sea. (Please note that this information is incorrect, Snowdon (Wales) is the highest in England and Wales, and Scafell Pike (Lake District) the highest in England. CH - 12/1999)."
