The sketches between folio 36 recto (D09255) and folio 43 recto (D09263) were made in the vicinity of Trematon Castle, above the St Germans or Lynher River west of the River Tamar and Plymouth. The subjects as far as folio 127 recto (D09358) are all identified or presumed sites within a few miles in and around Plymouth, suggesting a series of fairly short excursions. With the page turned horizontally, here the view is from near the castle, looking south-east down Forder Lake (over which the Great Western Railway subsequently crossed) past Antony Passage and the St Germans/Lynher towards the River Tamar (with shipping) and Plymouth. There are related views on folios 40 recto and 41 recto (D09259, D09260).
As noted in this sketchbook’s Introduction, local resident Mr Charles Nodder has used his knowledge of the area around Trematon Castle to write a privately circulated article discussing the relevant drawings in this sketchbook, after inspecting and discussing them with the present author,1 who is very grateful for his comments: he identifies the buildings as Antony Passage tide mill and Heron Cottage.2
Blank. There is a brown stain at the bottom, matching one on folio 40 recto opposite (D09259; CXXXI 40).
