Surrounded by various tracts, on all its quarters, which have already passed in review in the course of these sheets, this region must vecessarily be intersected by approaches to and from the whole of them. Hence the particular and principal ones, alone, shall receive mention.

The route said to be directed to the Moor camp, page 396, from the next or present district, would form a connexion, across its westerly foot, with the great ancient road to Buxton, page 359. The second said to advance under the Castle Naize of Chinley, page 396, would range past Eccles hall to the works upon Chapel Coombs, page 237 ;----ascending towards them at the Marsh in that district. A third and last would stretch from the Warnedge tract, leading to Taxal Edge, page 359, over the whole length of the department, and proceed past Chapel en le Frith to that fertile scene of military antiquity, the vale of Hope.

The reader has now before him, in detail, a complete and connected account of the military, religious, sepulchral and itinerary antiquities of those parts of the Cheshire and Derbyshire Alps, which could be reduced within the possibility of the present undertaking. The author's original researches and discoveries have been numerous and interesting, and he flatters hiinself, when combined with documents from previous writers, they will prove convincing to the real antiquarian, not only of the truth of the position upon which he begun his labours, but also as a ground-work upon which the historical narratives of the second volume may be firmly built and admitted. As a

conclusion and recapitulation of the whole career, a general view of the departments, contained in the work, is exhibited to the reader in the annexed topographical plate,
