This is a close view of Strand Gate from just outside it on Strand Hill; beyond it the road turns into the High Street. For a more distant view see folio 63 verso of the sketchbook (D10519; Turner Bequest CXL 56a) and for one looking the other way out of the town down to the Strand, folio 68 verso (D10529; Turner Bequest CXL 61a).
