Catalogue entry

This slight sketch appears to show the inside of a cave, perhaps Peak Cavern below Peveril Castle at Castleton, seen on adjacent pages; it is possibly continued on folio 20 recto opposite (D22185). For other views of the castle, village and cave, see under folio 1 verso (D22152).
Technical notes:
The page has been torn away about half way across its full width. The sketch fills the surviving portion.
