This is the second of five successive drawings showing Warfleet, just south of Dartmouth on the Dart Estuary. The others are on folios 41 recto, 43 recto, 44 recto and 45 recto (D08856, D08858–D08860), and the general setting is discussed in the entry for the first. In all but the last, the view is towards the Dart to the east. Here, on the track through the trees to the right where Castle Road now runs up to Dartmouth Castle, there are figures, one of whom may be riding a donkey.
Blank, save for inscription by John Ruskin in red ink ‘7’ bottom left, upside down. There is extensive brown spotting.
