A similar viewpoint to folios 60 verso and 61 verso (D26033, D26035; CCLXVII 62a, 63a), this sketch shows Jedburgh from the south-west with Newgate to the right of the abbey, and Abbey Bridge spanning the Jed Water to the left. At the top left may be Jedburgh Castle Jail, and at the bottom right two figures are shown sitting at the side of the road enjoying the same view as Turner.
It is interesting to note that when Turner sketched Kelso (his next stop), he found a viewpoint that formed a similar composition to this (folio 19 verso–20; D25962–D25963; CCLXVII 19a–20).
See folio 63 verso (D26039; CCLXVII 65a) for further references.
