Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, the drawing continues across folio 8 recto opposite (D35771). The viewpoint is north-east of St Martin’s Church (seen on the other page), looking west to Canterbury Cathedral from what is now the Querns Road area north of St Martin’s Hill. The modern building at the bottom left here is Canterbury Prison, with the towers of St Augustine’s Monastery beyond. A separate study of the landscape beyond appears to the above the horizon. There is a less detailed reprise of the whole view on folio 8 verso (D35772). Finberg wrongly described the view as ‘from Dane John’,1 which lies south-west of the Cathedral.
For other drawings of Canterbury in this sketchbook and elsewhere, see under folio 3 recto (D35791).
