Wilkinson notes ‘a village called Frittleworth, near Petworth’ as the ‘likely subject’ of this and other drawings in the sketchbook, adding his own misspelling to Finberg’s misreading of Turner’s inscription here as ‘Frittlewell’. Butlin, Luther and Warrell were the first to confirm the presence of Fittleworth church, ‘recognisable despite substantial alterations in the nineteenth century’. Presumably this is Finberg’s ‘Yost House’, though what he meant by this is unclear; perhaps an oast house?
Fittleworth is just south-east of Petworth. Sandpits and quarries as seen also on folio 7 (D07763) were common in the area.
