The gateway is all that remains of the Premonstratensian house founded by Eustace FitzJohn in 1147, and suppressed under Thomas Cromwell in 1539. It now stands isolated in a field. In Turner’s time some other buildings had survived and he included a glimpse of them to the left of this study of the gatehouse itself. The right-hand side of the composition was not developed.
Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
