As promised to the gentleman I met in Christchurch:

February 15, 2012

‘From Christchurch-yard all travellers will unite in admiring the delightful and exquisite scene its commanding situation exhibits: from thence the eye roves with unceasing satisfaction, and receives enjoyment from the beautiful assemblage of every species of variety, in the combination of which, a glorious landscape of nature’s production is conspicuously portrayed, and with elegance united.’  (Manby, 1802.  p. 44)
