Within the last 10 years great numbers of cottages have been erected upon the mountain wastes and sheepwalks ... some of whom are parishoners having settlements there and others are strangers, and they usually enclose about six acres of land with each cottage, under the idea that cottages on the waste with each a portion of land annexed to them cannot be pulled down.
