Finberg’s interpretation of Turner’s inscription ‘Buckl’ as indicating Buckland Monachorum1 seems to be correct. Otherwise, this succession of hills and valleys offers few topographical clues. Buckland Monachorum and nearby Buckland Abbey stand near the River Tavy, a few miles south of Tavistock (see under folio 143 verso; D09661) and a similar distance east of Calstock on the River Tamar (see folio 141 recto; D09656, and other nearby views). The viewpoint is yet to be established but is probably near the Tamar, looking east.
Folio 122 verso (D09621), a sketch of similar terrain, is inscribed ‘Road Buckland’.
