Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, this view of a succession of relatively featureless hills stretching to the horizon is likely, as Finberg proposed,1 to show Dartmoor. Unfortunately, Turner’s various topographical annotations remain elusive, except for apparent references to the Rivers Tamar and Tavy at the top right, suggesting that they are located in the distance, on the western fringes of the moor.
For other definite or likely Dartmoor views, see under folio 8 recto (D09489).
Finberg 1909, I, p.376.
