Catalogue entry

This is the right half of a double-page spread continued from folio 51 verso (D10962), opposite. A similar subject is drawn in the Yorkshire 4 sketchbook used on the same tour in 1816 (Tate D11403–D11404; Turner Bequest TB CXLVII 22a–23).
For Middleham in the present sketchbook see folio 47 verso (D10954).
See Introduction and Technical notes to this sketchbook for the change of ink colour, apparently from blue to red, in the numbering of this page.
