Jepson Field Book volume 13 page 170
Lodore, Grange, Portinscale [September 17, 1905]  not falls, and second there isn_t much water except after a storm when I suppose there is a very nice little roar of water cascading over the rocks. And thus around the Lake. Grange is a quaint bit of a hamlet in the Barrowdale Valley. A most beautiful little church here and also a handsome village school _ stone and very well designed. A tablet on the side read as follows: _This School was erected to the memory of Miss Margaret Heathcote mainly by the subscriptions of personal friends and others who thus recognized a life of good work spent among and for the inhabitants of this neighborhood. The first stone was laid Oct. 4, 1894  ::::::::: [Lodore, Grange, Portinscale] September 17, 1905  by Miss Langton of Barrow House" That one may do good work of the utmost importance in a quiet village is well recognized in England and it must become more so with us in the United States. There is too much vaulting ambition on the part of our young people - young women want "careers" and young men essay to play parts for which they are quite unfitted. Before reaching Portinscale I plunged into a wood, following a right of way path which filed across pasture, through wood, etc. It is a fine thing to follow these old time paths. I dare say the earliest Britons made them. The woods were oak, maple, birth, Scotch pine, ash, mountain-ash, spruce, larch.
