There are three studies of Berwick-upon-Tweed on this page, all made with the sketchbook in different orientations. At the centre of the page, with the sketchbook inverted, is a view east along the River Tweed from the west of the castle with Berwick Bridge, connecting Tweedmouth to the south with Berwick (continued on folio 60; D26032; CCLXVII 62) to the north. The other two sketches, at the top of the page with the sketchbook in its usual orientation, and at the outer edge with the book turned to the right, are studies of the ruins of Berwick Castle, taken from the same position. These studies were all made in connection to Turner’s watercolour Berwick-upon-Tweed circa 1832 (whereabouts unknown),1 which was based on a sketch on folios 48 verso–49 of this sketchbook (D26009–D26010; CCLXVII 48a–49).
