Hartley


HARTLEY, a township, in the parish of Kirkby Stephen, East ward and union, county of Westmorland, 1½ mile (E.) from Kirkby-Stephen; containing 158 inhabitants. Veins of lead and copper have been wrought here since 1827, but much larger quantities of the former were raised some years previously; and coal has been obtained on Hartley Fell. Vestiges of Hartley Castle, a stately edifice the residence of the Musgrave family, of Edenhall, may still be traced on a commanding eminence; near which are a petrifying spring, and a cascade falling 60 feet perpendicularly, called Ewbank Scarr.
