Catalogue entry

This is a thumbnail sketch of the view north from Mowbray Castle, Hackfall, as drawn in the following sketch on folios 11 verso–12 recto (D11387–D11388). To the left is what appears to be the profile of a hill, evidently continuing a sketch formerly opposite. Perhaps a leaf is missing between folio 10 verso (D11385) and the present page.
See the verso (D11387) for general notes on Hackfall.
