Catalogue entry

Rather than Bodiam Castle, for which see notes to folio 67 (D05694) for drawings in this sketchbook, these ruins belong to the thirteenth- and fourteenth-century Bayham Abbey of which views follow on folios 83–5 (D05700–D05702), as first observed by Edward Croft-Murray. Bayham Abbey, standing in grounds landscaped by Humphry Repton, is about two miles west of Lamberhurst.
