With the sketchbook inverted there are two sketches on this page. The main sketch is of the bridge that crosses the River Greta near Rokeby Park. At the top left is a small sketch of Rokeby Park as seen on folio 51 verso (D25622), showing just the central block and two flanking towers from the south.
