The ruined castle is seen from the east, from the valley of the Gatcombe Brook which skirts the north side of the castle.1 The gable topped by a finial in the foreground belongs to the watermill below the castle. There is a closer view of it on folio 148 recto (D08642; CXXIII 145). For a discussion of Berry Pomeroy and other studies in this sketchbook, see the entry for folio 141 recto (D08628; CXXIII 138).
See local map, castle plan and ‘old print’ from a similar viewpoint in Deryck Seymour and Jack Hazzard, Berry Pomeroy Castle, Torquay 1982, pp.14, 18, 168 respectively.
