Mr. Pope’s epistle to Lord Burlington,
has been so judiciously put in practice,

that a place to wonder at,” has been
effectually realized. The grounds were
first begun to be laid put in 1720, and
perhaps their interest is not decreased
by retaining several features of a style
somewhat gone by, exhibiting the
well-trimmed screening hedge, the
shaven bank of the meandering stream,
and the bronze statue so happily dis-
posed, as to awaken a classical feeling;
whilst the fortunate contiguity of the
ruins of Fountains Abbey affords an
interest which no art could supply.
The estate of Studley formerly be-
longed to Sir John Mallorie, a dis-

Sunk Island, E. R. (9) a town-

of Holderness, 8 miles S. E. from He-

began to appear in the reign of Charles

I., by the recess of the tides of the
Humber; a few acres were at first
left dry at low water, but the area in-
creasing every year in extent, was se-
cured by an embankment, and con-
verted into pasture ground; as the
water further receded, further em-
bankments became necessary, and a
surface, containing upwards of 5000
acres, has thus been reclaimed from
the river : a large portion is now in a
high state of cultivation. Sunk Island
belongs to the crown, and is on lease.
Here is a small episcopal chapel. An
extension of the embanked land is ex-
pected from the operation of warping,
or increasing the elevation of the soil,
by the admission of the water at high
tides by sluices, and leaving it to de-
posit its sediment.
