ley, Esq. alternately. This is a pleasant
village with a spacious and handsome

room, as they are admitted from every
quarter of the globe : to it are attached
six scholarships at Christ College,
Cambridge, founded by the late Mr.
Carr. The father of the celebrated
Archdeacon Paley was upwards of
fifty years master of this seminary;

but the philosophical divine himself
was born at Peterborough. About a
mile to the north of Giggleswick, is the
remarkable ebbing and flowing well,
whose water, limpid, cold, and whole-
some, ebbs and flows at irregular pe-
riods, sometimes thrice or oftener in an
hour, at others, not more than four or
five times in a day, rising and falling
about half a yard: no satisfactory solu-
tion has yet been given of this phe-
nomenon. Giggleswick contains the

Settle, and Stainforth; entire popula-
tion, 3257.
