Published in 1828, Pigot's Directory describes Cheshire as: "Large tracts of peat moss and black moor land exhibit themselves in that part which lies upon the confines of Yorkshire and Derbyshire. Cheshire was celebrated some centuries ago for the great extent of its forests and heath lands...

Although it is stated that the general appearance of this county is flat, it must not be thence inferred to be deficiant in varied beauty and picturesque landscape..."
