The view, inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, is north-east across the River Dee to Chester Castle, with the Old Dee Bridge in the distance to the right (now obscured by trees). The viewpoint is the southern approach to Grosvenor Bridge, then under construction, and apparently shown to the left. The view continues a little to the right on folio 64 verso (D22270). Compare the view on folio 67 recto (D22274).
For other views of Chester, and the history of Grosvenor Bridge, see under folio 14 verso (D22176).
