Catalogue entry

Only the three central arches are shown clearly, but this may be Greystone Bridge, in the wooded Tamar Valley about four miles south-east of Launceston (see under folio 106 recto; D09596); compare the bridge on folio 121 verso opposite (D09619). For other views along the Tamar Valley, see under folio 114 verso (D09606).
