The view, inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, is along the valley of the River Severn, looking north to Bridgnorth’s bridge, and continues across folio 80 recto opposite (D22297; Turner Bequest CCXXXIX 79). There is a similar view on folio 1 recto (D22151), under which other sketches are mentioned, and on folios 77verso–78 recto (D22292, D22293; Turner Bequest CCXXXIX 76a, 77) and the recto (D22295).
At the outer half of the leaf is a slight but vigorous sketch, apparently of a cave. Its orientation is unclear, but it may show the inside of Peak Cavern, below Peveril Castle at Castleton, as seen elsewhere in this sketchbook (see under folio 1 verso; D22152), or another Peak District cave.
