The church depicted in this sketch has not been identified. There are many places it could be, considering the mileage covered in this sketchbook. It may be associated with sketches of Manchester elsewhere in the sketchbook (folio 34; D25702).
Finberg regarded the sketches on this page and opposite on folio 5 (D25651) as continuous. However, the sketches were drawn with the sketchbook held in opposite directions.
