Before you leave Lancaster, take a ride to the three mile-stone
on the road to Hornby, and there have Mr. Gray's noble view of
the vale of Lonsdale, which he or his editor, describes in these
words, in the note page 373 of his life:- 'This scene opens just
three miles from Lancaster, on what is called the Queen's road.
To see this view in perfection you must go into a field on the
left . Here, Ingleborough, behind a variety of lesser
mountains, makes the background of the prospect; on each hand of
the middle distance rise two sloping hills, the left clothed with
thick wood, the right with variegated rock
As several mistakes have been made respecting this station, it is
necessary to point it out more precisely. About a quarter of a
mile beyond the third milestone, where the road makes a turn to
the right, there is a gate on the left, which leads into a field,
where the station meant will be found.
