This is the third of five successive drawings showing Warfleet, just south of Dartmouth on the Dart Estuary. The others are on folios 41 recto, 42 recto, 44 recto and 45 recto (D08856, D08857, D08859, 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 from what is now Castle Road. Turner focuses here on a beached boat and figures handling its cargo.
Blank, save for inscriptions by John Ruskin in red ink ‘6’ bottom left and ‘637’ top right, both upside down. A tear has been repaired at the bottom centre.
