: Popular Rhymes And Nursery Tales

"Here are three great hills, not far distant asunder, seeming to be as

high as the clouds, which are Ingleborow, Penigent, and Pendle, on the

top of which grows a peculiar plant called cloudsberry, as though it

came out of the clouds. This hill formerly did the country much harm, by

reason of an extraordinary deal of water gushing out of it, and is now

famous for an infallible sign of rain whensoever the top of it is

covered with a mist; and by reason of the excessive height for which

they are all three celebrated, there is this proverbial rhime goes

current amongst them:

Ingleborow, Pendle, and Penigent,

Are the highest hills betwixt Scotland and Trent."--Ibid.
