The subject is continued on folio 29 recto opposite (D02510). This is one of six views in this sketchbook of the gatehouse, almost all that survives, of the mid–fourteenth century castle at Morpeth. It was repaired in the sixteenth century and largely restored in the nineteenth. Finberg erroneously refers to the structure as a ‘Peel castle’,1 meaning presumably a Pele tower.
The other views are on folio 29 verso, 30 recto, 31 recto, 31 verso–32 recto and 33 recto (D02511–D02516).
