This is the right half of a double-page spread continued from folio 63 (D10984), opposite, recording Hornby Castle from the carriage drive to the east. Turner sketched the same aspect in greater detail in this sketchbook, folios 67 verso–68 (D10990–D10991), and the south and south-west aspects in three sketches in the Yorkshire 3 sketchbook (Tate D11413–D11418; Turner Bequest CXLVI 27a–30). The sketch is continued to the right at the top of the page.
Hornby Castle was first built in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, and remodelled in the 1760s by the architect John Carr of York.
