The viewpoint is Chapel Hill, near the ruins of the Holy Ghost Chapel, looking south to the centre of Basingstoke. The building shown in outline towards the right in the distance is St Michael’s Church with its squat tower and prominent pinnacles. The intervening space has since been overlaid by railway lines, a dual carriageway, car parks and tower blocks, but an 1840s print of Basingstoke from Chapel Hill after G.H. Shepherd (Hampshire Museums Service, Winchester) shows the view prior to these developments.
