Finberg gave this sheet the title ‘Weir Bridge, Ludlow’.1 Turner’s drawing appears to show the sixteenth-century three-arched stone bridge over the River Teme that links the outlying village of Ludford to the south of the town with Ludlow itself. The bridge is still in place, one of three bridges over the river that almost encircles the town. Other drawings made at Ludlow in this book are on folios 96 recto and 97 recto (D01261, D01317; Turner Bequest XXXVIII 11a, 63).
Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
