The Hospice at Hampsfell (interior)
The Hospice at Hampsfell (interior)
Verse on the Western wall -

This Hospice as an open door,
A like to welcome rich and poor;
A roomy seat for young and old,
Where they may screen them from the cold.

Three windows that command a view,
To North, to West and Southward too;
A flight of steps requireth care,
The roof will show a prospect rare:

Mountain and vale you thence survey,
The winding streams and noble bay;
The sun at noon the shadow hides,
Along the East and Western sides:

A lengthened chain holds guard around,
To keep the cattle from the ground;
Kind reader freely take your pleasure,
But do no mischief to my treasure.
