Old Bath 1776

Matlock Bath from Lovers Walk, 1779

Stereoview of Lovers' Walk, 1859-62

This etching of "The Cascade near Matlock Bath Derbyshire" was published in the Lady's Magazine. I cannot provide an accurate date. However, the original was published in "The Modern Universal British Traveller or, a New, Complete, and Accurate tour Through England, Wales, Scotland, and the Neighbouring Islands" by Charles Burlington, David Llewellyn, and Alexander Murray, published by J. Cooke, London, 1779... The articles respecting England, by Charles Burlington, Esq.

There's a similar image elsewhere on this website, in the "Bemrose Guide".

Whilst this is almost exactly the same as the version published in 1779 there is one minor difference which is the length of the
fisherman's rod. A third version, "A Prospect of that Beautiful Cascade below Matlock Bath" published in 1743, shows three women
in crinolines with a male on the opposite bank close to the bottom of the Cascade.
