NOTES TO THE POEM OF MICHAEL.
Page 213—line 14 “There's Richard Bateman," &c. The story alluded to here is well known in the country. The chapel is called Ings Chapel ; and is on the right hand side of the road leading from Kendal to Ambleside.
Page 217-line 4 -had design'd to build a sheepfold.” &c. It may be proper to inform some readers, that a sheep-foldin these mountains is an unroofed building of stone walls, with different divisions. It is generally placed by the side of a brook, for the convenience of washing the sheep; but it is also useful as a shelter for them, and as a place to drive them into, to enable the shepherds conveniently to single out one or more for any particular purpose.
