Catalogue entry

Turner’s view here is taken from near Farnley Hall, looking towards Otley Bridge in the distance to the left, with Newall Hall (demolished 1928) in the centre middle distance. Turner recorded a similar view in a watercolour of The Carriage Drive, Farnley Hall, painted c.1818 for Walter Fawkes of Farnley (private collection).1 The same building is included there, seen from a greater distance.
