Catalogue entry

This is the left half of a double-page spread continued to the right on folio 62 verso (D10983), opposite, recording Hornby Castle from the carriage drive to the east. Turner sketched the same aspect in greater detail in this sketchbook, folios 67 verso–68 (D10990–D10991), and the south and south-west aspects in three sketches in the Yorkshire 3 sketchbook (Tate D11413–D11418; Turner Bequest CXLVI 27a–30). The sketch is continued to the right at the top of the page.
For Hornby Castle see folio 62 verso (D10983).
See Introduction and Technical notes to this sketchbook for the change of ink colour, apparently from blue to red, in the numbering of this page.
