Catalogue entry

As Ian Warrell has noted, there are three views of Peveril Castle here:1 a main view from Cave Dale, looking west up to the castle, and two slight sketches framed by pencil lines at the bottom left and right, looking from the south-east and south; Turner has numbered the sketches sequentially. For other views of the castle, Castleton and Peak Cavern, see under folio 1 verso (D22152).
