This is a single-page reprise, made from a little to the north, of the view of Worcester on folios 2 verso–3 recto (D22154, D22155), looking south-east across the River Severn beside Hylton Road. The tower of All Saints Church, the steeple of St Andrew’s and the silhouette of Worcester Cathedral are seen beyond the bridge. The view remains recognisable, although the buildings on the right do not survive.
For other views of Worcester, see under D22154.
