Catalogue entry

This rather rough sketch seems to show three arches of a bridge. Bearing in mind the proximity of this sketch to studies of Berwick Bridge (folios 45 verso and 46; D25725, D25726) this is also likely to be of the structure.
For references to further sketches of Berwick in this sketchbook, see folio 13 verso (D25665).
