Near Tickhill, Yorkshire.—Earl of Scarborough.
The situation of Sandbeck Park is very pleasant, quiet, and retired, and the “tout ensemble” of a thoroughly English character. A large herd of deer roam through a spacious park adorned with stately trees of ancient growth, while on one side is a large lake, and on another the elegant spire of Laughton-en-le-Morthen Church at no great distance comes into view. A handsome private chapel adjoins the house.
