serpentines sweetly down the vale, amidst rich assemblage of beautiful trees, by Hartsope Hall (a picturesque old farm-house) to Brother Water.
The road from Ambleside to Ulls Water runs close to Brother Water, and the mountains rise from it on the right in a very bold style, as may be seen from the last subject. At Brother Water the valley is scarcely half a mile across; and the western side of the lake is bounded by a hill, which rises steeply from it.
There is a road from Hartsope Hall to Ulls Water, which on the banks of Brother Water is through a wood of fine oaks, out of which the magnificent mountains of Hartsope rise in a style of superior grandeur.
This bridge is over the little river just mentioned, and on the footway from the Hall to the travelled side of the valley. In this representation Dove Crag is the distance, and appears just over the bridge.



From Brother Water to the Inn at Patterdale the road is good, and winds pleasantly amongst trees, affording now and then a glimpse of the surrounding country.
The inn at Patterdale is ten miles from Ambleside, twenty-one from Keswick, fourteen from Penrith, and half a mile from Ulls Water.
Grizedale Bridge is over the brook which runs out of Grizedale by Patterdale Hall, and is distant from the Inn about half a mile upon the Penrith road. The distance is Place Fell.
The head of Ulls Water lies south-west of its foot; the lake is of an irregular figure, and composed of three unequal reaches, the middle of which is somewhat larger than the northern one; the shortest is seen from the Inn at Patterdale, and not half the length of either of the others. Ulls Water is less unequal in its breadth than the other
