Hart. Leap Well is a small spring of water, about five miles from Richmond in Yorkshire, and near the side of the road which leads from Richmond to Askrigg. Its name is derived from a remarkable chace, the memory of which is preserved by the monuments spoken of in the second Part of the following Poem, which monuments do now exist as I have there described. them.

The Knight had ridden down from Wensley moor
With the slow motion of a summer's cloud;
He turn'd aside towards a Vassal's door,

Bring another Horse !” he cried aloud.

And,

Another Horse !”—That shout the Vassal heard,
And saddled his best steed, a comely Grey ;
Sir Walter mounted him; he was the third
Which he had mounted on that glorious day.
