the westward of Pateley Bridge. But the
manufactures of the West Riding are its
peculiar distinction, for which the local
advantages of the country are admirably
adapted; they comprise broad and nar-
row cloths of all qualities, and every
kind of woollen goods; and the cut-
lery and plated goods supplied by the
workmen of Sheffield : these manu-
factures have had a very sensible effect
in promoting the agriculture of the
district, by affording a ready market
for every sort of provision; and much
land, originally barren, has been occu-
pied in small portions by persons who
do not consider farming as a business,
but who keep a cow to supply their
family, and a horse to carry their goods
to market. The inland navigation is
admirable, most of the large manufac-
turing towns possessing either a river
or navigable canal. The principal
rivers are, the Aire, the Calder, the
Dearne, the Don, the Nidd, the Ouse,
the Ribble, the Skell, and the Wharfe.
The West Riding contains 162,819
houses, and 799,357 inhabitants.
