Judging from the themes and locations explored by Turner in the surrounding pages, this is the final page in a run of drawings, between folio 20 verso and the current page, which describe points along the cliffs between Folkestone and Dover (see D17240, D17241, D17242, D17244). Finberg recognised the topographical form but did not offer any suggestion of specific location.1
The whole page is taken up with the dramatic, sharply rendered chunks of the craggy cliff face, which meet their crowning turf with a fuzzy scribble. On the left hand side, as the subject recedes into the distance, a point at which the headland extends out into the water is clear, and beyond that a single, brief line indicates more land in the distance.
Finberg 1909, I, p.604.
