This is the right half of a double-page spread continued from folio 22 verso (D11403) opposite, recording the castle and town of Middleham from a viewpoint on the right bank of the River Ure to the north-west near Middleham Bridge. See the Yorkshire 1 sketchbook (Tate D10958–D10959, D10962–D10963; Turner Bequest CXLIV 49a–50, 51a–52) for similar views drawn on the same occasion. Turner’s friend Thomas Girtin sketched a similar subject about 1800 in the Shepherd sketchbook (Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester).
See D11403 for general notes on Middleham.
The leaf is darkened from over-exposure.
