The first approach to this region was made by Lieut.
Laycock in 1807 when, with several men, he ascended the Lake
River to Wood's Lake and proceeded to the Derwent along the
Clyde. Thomas Toombs, a ticket-of-leaver informed Calder
the surveyor, years after the event, that he had seen the
Great Lake in 1815. No doubt, many such men, attracted to
the wild, lonely plateau came hunting for the more elusive
creatures, thought to be living there.
