Catalogue entry

This seems likely to be a view over the deep, wooded Lydford Gorge, south of the village of the same name. For other views around Lydford, see under folio 28 recto (D09510), where the upper end of the gorge is shown.
Verso:
Blank; a stain at the top right matches that on folio 30 opposite (D09512).
