The distant skyline towards the top includes spires and a windmill, and what seems to be the dome of St Philip’s Church (later Birmingham Cathedral) at the centre. A separate study towards the bottom appears to show a similar prospect beyond a low foreground of houses and trees. The views are comparable with those of Birmingham from the south-west on folios 18 verso–19 recto (D22007, D22008)
