Catalogue entry

The view is from the west end of Castleton, looking east to St Edmund’s Church and north up to Peveril Castle, now obscured by trees from this angle, above the gorge leading to Peak Cavern. The sketch continues a little way onto folio 22 recto opposite (D22189); for other views of the castle, village and cave, see under folio 1 verso (D22152).
