Catalogue entry

This carefully delineated subject remains unidentified, though it is likely to be a Devon village. There are figures and possibly pack animals on the main bridge in the middle distance, with what appears to be a subsidiary bridge in the left foreground, and possibly a low footbridge below the houses on the right.
