Transcript COTTAGES AND STANLEY CHURCH, OUCHTHORPE LANE. The scenery in the immediate neighbourhood of these cottages is perhaps the most beautiful which the vicinity of Wakefield can boast. The whole landscape eastward looks like one continuous richly-wooded park; and it has often been matter of surprise to the author of this work, that the proprietors of the land have never erected thereon tasteful villas for the accommodation of small genteel families now resident in the town, the site being inimitably adapted to such a purpose. The church, which stands upon the brow of the hill, contiguous to the village, which name it has assumed, was erected about twenty years ago, at a cost of 12,000/., by certain government commissioners, appointed under an act of parliament for the building of churches in populous districts. It may be described as belonging to the Gothic order; and we would here remark, that if the original design had been adopted, the structure had not exhibited that glaring departure from true proportion which, to the eye of taste, is so discernible. The formation of an Architectural Society in Yorkshire, whose object is to assist in the restoration of ancient ecclesiastical edifices, and to suggest (if I mistake not) plans for new erections, will, I trust, for the future prevent the repetition of tasteless and unjustifiable interference with the designs of architects; since that very interference has been known to operate as a permanent injury to their professional reputation. This church, consecrated by Edward Lord Archbishop of York, and dedicated to St. Peter, is a perpetual curacy (having its own parochial district), in the patronage of the vicar of Wakefield for the time being. It is situated about two miles N.N.E. from Wakefield. There was formerly a Roman station not far from hence, where crucibles, moulds, and silver and copper coins of various Roman emperors, have been discovered in great abundance: of the latter, 40 lbs. weight was dug up in 1812. Many of these relics are deposited in the British Museum and other similar establishments.
