Catalogue entry

Guy’s Cliffe House, near Warwick, is seen from the north with the footbridge over the River Avon in the foreground, inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation; the building on the right, known as the Saxon Mill, is now a restaurant. As part of unpublished Turner research informed by local knowledge, Dr Bernard Richards confirmed the subject, which Turner noted in this instance.1 See under folio 28 verso (D22374) for the house and other views.
