This sketch is the last that Turner made of Newark Castle as he coached away from it towards Philiphaugh and Selkirk; folios 36–38 verso (D26164–D26169). From the road to the east, we look north-east across the Yarrow Water, towards the ruin which is shown as a faint outline in the middle distance near the centre of the picture. The road that Turner was travelling on is labelled at the bottom right of the page (‘Road’).
