The top drawing, observed from an easterly viewpoint towards Folkestone, describes a flat, calm sea at far left. Sandgate Castle sits towards the centre, seemingly indicated by a descending arrow, and overlooked towards the right by an elevated Martello tower. Fishing huts and attendant paraphernalia are sketched loosely in the foreground at right.
A more detailed sketch across the middle of the page looks at Sandgate from the west. The castle and another Martello tower are included at right. The foreground is concerned with huts, dwellings, and the general trappings of seaside labour which are scattered along the shore. Several crosses on the left side of the sketch denote empty boat cradles, ready to support absent fishing vessels.
At the centre of the bottom edge of this page, a presumably accidental pencil line marks the paper.
