At the corner where the paper has been torn away the drawing, inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, is continued on folio 32 verso (D01963). This subject cannot be identified precisely; it may show the banks of the River Calder near Whalley or, alternatively, perhaps the River Hodder along which Turner travelled to reach Whitewell (see folios 27 verso–29 verso; D01953–D01957). It may have been noted at the same time as the study of trees with a cottage on folio 49 recto (D01988; Turner Bequest XLV 48), which has a similar scale and general handling.
As mentioned above, the lower right corner has been torn away, evidently before Turner made the drawing.
