Catalogue entry

The substantial stone bridge over the River Derwent is the viewpoint for this view of Chatsworth House from the west, with the Tudor Hunting Tower at the top left brought a little to the right of its true juxtaposition on the escarpment beyond. At the top right is a slight sketch apparently showing the house from the north-west. Turner’s ‘5’ and 10’ appear to refer to groupings of balusters on the bridge. For other views of Chatsworth, see under D22231.
