Repton trees

Repton. - Close to the church and school of this village are some remarkably fine broad-leaved elms. They are of great age, with trunks from 12 ft. to 15 ft. in circumference, from 70 ft. to 80 ft. in height, and still growing vigorously. In the house are some excellent imitations of wainscot in plaster; and in the exterior, some Gothic work supposed to be old, but which we have no doubt is comparatively modern.
