There are two sketches here. At the top is a distant view of Lichfield, Staffordshire, from the south-east, with the former racecourse beside the Tamworth road on Whittington Heath (now the site of a golf course and barracks).1 The three spires of Lichfield Cathedral are seen towards the top left. Across the centre is another view, showing the cathedral closer to the north-west from Borrowcop Hill off the Tamworth road, with the tower of St Mary’s Church in front (later rebuilt with a spire and now partly given over to Lichfield Heritage Centre).
For other views of Lichfield, see under folio 30 verso (D22378).
