This was a right-hand page from the sketchbook. From Marlow (for which see Tate D05906; Turner Bequest XCV 2), Turner seems to have gone about a mile downstream to look back at the town from Winter Hill (see Tate D05907; Turner Bequest XCV 3). There, he was able to see Bisham in the distance on the left. This drawing looks south to Bisham, which is seen more closely from the river with the Norman tower of All Saints Church and the Tudor mansion, formerly Bisham Abbey, in the right distance. Turner notes the calm surface of the Thames as it passes in the foreground. A stain on the right of the leaf matches one on D05907 and D05910; Turner Bequest XCV 3, 6.
