Catalogue entry

The bridge with its chapel was built in about 1483, following the Will of the master of the grammar school. In Turner’s time the chapel had been converted into a gaol. In the late nineteenth century large Perpendicular-style windows were returned to the walls he has drawn here, filled in and pierced only by small lights. The subject was drawn with the page turned horizontally.
