From Calder Bridge there is an excellent road of ten miles to Whitehaven; but that usually taken by tourists inclines more towards the mountains, which, however, on this side present no very interesting features. For some miles the principal prospect is over a cultivated country to the sea, with the Isle of Man and the Scotch mountains in the distance.
About three miles from Calder Bridge, the two rival points of Scawfell appear over the neighbouring mountains, separated by the yawning chasm Mickle Door; and two miles further, the town of Egremont is seen through a narrow vale on the left. Seven miles from Calder Bridge a part of Ennerdale Lake appears in sight; and after passing the hamlet of Ennerdale Bridge, in which stands the church and two small public-houses, the lake is observed from the rising ground in another point of view, accompanied by the grand mountain scenery of Ennerdale, amid which the Pillar rises conspicuous.
Turning to the right by the public-house at Lamplugh Cross, in a mile further you pass between the hall and the church; the hall is now rebuilt in the
