Catalogue entry

For Lympne Castle and St Stephen’s Church in this sketchbook see note to folio 53 verso (D10501; Turner Bequest CXL 47a). This quick outline sketch is probably of the same view, taken from below the inland cliff on which the buildings stand, as appears on folio 54 verso (D10503; Turner Bequest CXL 48a).
