Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, the drawing is continued on folio 68 recto opposite (D01811; Turner Bequest XLII 135). The single building beside a wide inlet is somewhat reminiscent of Tygwyn Ferry opposite Harlech, which Turner drew in the 1798 North Wales sketchbook (Tate D01459; Turner Bequest XXXIX 95), and in his painting of Harlech Castle, from Twgwyn Ferry, Summer’s Evening Twilight, shown at the Royal Academy in 1799 (Yale Center for British Art, New Haven);1 however, the similarities are superficial and it seems clear that this is a spot in southern Wales.
