Catalogue entry

The subject, continued a little way onto folio 35 verso (D09518), seems likely to be the mill once situated at the upper end of Lydford Gorge, east of the village and near the site of the later railway viaduct (now disused).1 For other views around Lydford, see under folio 28 recto (D09510).
