The view appears to be to the west from the road above Doniford, looking along Bridgwater Bay towards the hills above Minehead and Dunster on the horizon, with Watchet beyond the headland in the middle distance, possibly with masts indicated in the harbour.
There is a similar view on folio 213 verso (D08747; CXXIII 210a); another made west of Watchet, on folio 165 verso (D08672; CXXIII 162a), is closest to the watercolour of the subject (Lady Lever Art Gallery, Port Sunlight),1 engraved in 1821 for the Picturesque Views on the Southern Coast of England. For other views of Dunster, see under folio 19 verso (D08398); for Watchet see folio 173 verso (D08687; CXXIII 170a); and for Minehead see under folio 4 recto (D08368).
