This slight drawing, made with the page turned horizontally, was not recorded by Finberg in his Turner Bequest Inventory.1 It possibly records the landscape near Trematon Castle; the sketches between folio 36 recto (D09255) and folio 43 recto (D09263) were made in its vicinity, above the St Germans or Lynher River west of the River Tamar and Plymouth. The subjects as far as folio 127 recto (D09358) are all identified or presumed sites within a few miles in and around Plymouth, suggesting a series of fairly short excursions.
