Descriptive gazetteer entries

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Bleatarn like this:

BLEA TARN, a hamlet and a lakelet in Warcop parish, Westmoreland. The hamlet lies on the E side of Patterdale, 6 miles NNE of Ambleside. The manor was given, in the time of Henry II., by John Tailbois, to Byland Abbey in Yorkshire; and a cell to that Abbey was built on it. The lakelet lies high, and sends a streamlet, jointly with that from Angle tarn, to the head of Ulleswater.
