The pinnacles of Auckland Castle’s St Peter’s Chapel are seen to the south-west, with deer in the castle’s park in the foreground. The sketch continues on folio 27 recto opposite (D12305; CLVI 26) with the view up the River Wear. There is a single-page sketch from a similar viewpoint on folio 27 verso (D12306; CLVI 26a). As now bound and foliated, these Bishop Auckland views fall among the sketches of Raby Castle and its surroundings which fill the rest of the second half of the sketchbook, from folio 17 recto (D12298; CLVI 22a) to folio 32 recto (D12309; CLVI 28).
The page is rather rubbed towards the left, as is the corresponding outer section of the other half of the view.
