Turner appears to have inscribed ‘Tamar’ at the bottom right, and Finberg described the view as ‘near Wier [sic] Head’,1 south of Gunnislake; see also the verso (D09646). There appears to be a waterwheel associated with the buildings towards the bottom right, but few other precise topographical pointers. This book contains numerous sketches along the meandering Tamar among wooded hills several miles up- and down-river of Weir Head, but the present scene remains to be precisely identified.
For other views along the Tamar Valley, see under folio 114 verso (D09606).
Finberg 1909, I, p.375.
