Not on display
This one of a sequence of mostly unidentified landscape sketches running from folio 27 verso (D12355) to folio 33 recto (D12366), with a further two on folio 50 recto (D12384) and folios 51 verso–52 recto (D12386, D12387). As discussed in the entry for folio 27 verso, they are likely to show scenes on the moors and hills around Bowes, south-west of Barnard Castle.
There is a figure on the hillside to the left near a rectangular object or objects, perhaps deposited by or to be loaded on the two-wheeled cart nearby. Beyond is a valley with a house by a road or river. Turner’s inscriptions may be colour notes. The view continues with distant hills on folio 31 recto opposite (D12362).
