"They reckon it but 8 mile from the place I was at the night before but I was 3 or 4 hours at least going it; here I found a very good smith to shooe the horses, for these stony hills and wayes pulls off a shooe presently and wears them as thinn that it was a constant charge to shooe my horses every 2 or 3 days; but this smith did shooe them so well and so good shooes that they held some of the shooes 6 weeks; the stonyness of the wayes all here about teaches them the art of makeing good shooes and setting them on fast."

"Here I came to villages of sad little hutts made up of drye walls, only stones piled together and the roofs of same slatt; there seemed to little or noe tunnells for their chimneys and have no morter or plaister within or without; for the most part I tooke them at first sight for a sort of houses or barns to fodder cattle in, not thinking them to be dwelling houses, they being scattering houses here one there another, in some places there may be 20 or 30 together, and the Churches the same; it must needs be very cold dwellings but it shews something of the lazyness of the people; indeed here and there there was a house plaister'd, but there is sad entertainment, that sort of clap bread and butter and cheese and a cup of beer all one can have, they are 8 mile from a market town and their miles are tedious to go both for illness of way and length of the miles."

(taken 9.6.2009)  
The reply, from Sara Batterly, 27 September 2016, is:-
This was the cold store where the farmer delivered the milk. People in the village would leave their small milk churns in the "safe" to be filled by the farmer.
The butcher and the vegetables man also used to stop at this corner of Hartsop on their rounds.
