This is the fourth of five successive drawings showing Warfleet, just south of Dartmouth on the Dart Estuary. The others are on folios 41 recto, 42 recto, 43 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 from what is now Castle Road.
Blank, save for inscription by John Ruskin in red ink ‘5’ upside down, bottom left. There is a repaired tear at the bottom right and slight brown spotting.
