Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, there are two similar views of the ruins of Ashby-de-la-Zouch Castle here. Above is a view from the south, with the brick-built tower at the south-west corner of the gardens at the centre of the foreground, with the Hastings Tower to the right and the kitchen block with the square tower of St Helen’s Church beyond. Below right is a smaller prospect from further a little further east, framed by pencil lines. Turner’s viewpoints are now occupied by later houses and gardens.
