Catalogue entry

There are two slight sketches here. The main view across the lower half of the page seems to have been drawn looking down on houses descending between wooded hills. They are possibly the same buildings as seen from below on folio 1 verso opposite (D08363).
Above this drawing is another, starting a quarter of the way across the page from the left and framed by vertical and horizontal lines, showing hills or West Country cliffs to the right of an unidentified, possibly architectural feature.
