Catalogue entry

With the book turned to the right is a slight sketch of an arched bridge over a river or stream with trees either side. This is likely to be one of the bridges over the River Greta near Rokeby Park. The page comes in the sketchbook between sketches of Rokeby Park (folio 9; D25540) and Mortham Tower (folio 10; D25542).
