The setting is a small cove or inlet. Men are working on beached boats to the left with what seems to be a minor fort or fortified building, possibly ruined, and other buildings beyond. The masts of at least two ships are indicated on the right. The setting has yet to be established, but is probably west of Plymouth along the Hamoaze (the Tamar Estuary), which has seen much subsequent development, or to the south on Mount Edgcumbe, which appears on folio 10 recto (D08874; CXXV 9).
Blank, save for some offsetting from the drawing on folio 10 recto opposite (D08874; CXXV 9).
