Across this page and folio 17 (D25670) is a view of Newark Castle near Selkirk from across the Yarrow Water to the north. Turner made similar views at the same time in the Abbotsford sketchbook (Tate D26066; Turner Bequest CCLXVII 79), one of which became the basis for his watercolour Newark Castle circa 1832 (private collection)1 that was engraved for Sir Walter Scott’s Poetical Works.
