Driffield; inhabitants, 425; a perpetual
curacy; patron, SirTatton Sykes, Bart.
Sledmere Hall, the seat of the baronet,
is situated in a spacious vale, in the
centre of the Wolds, and is confessedly
the great ornament of this bleak and
hilly district; the mansion was erected
by Sir Christopher Sykes, about half a
century ago, from a design of his own,
and is a very noble structure : the su-
perb library was enriched by the late
Sir Mark M. Sykes with some of the
rarest and most valuable editions of
ancient authors extant; these biblio-
graphical treasures, since his decease,
however have been dispersed. The
house is surrounded by plantations,
judiciously disposed, to the extent of
several miles. A lofty arched gate-
way, erected over the road to Brid-
lington, produces a novel and very
striking effect.
