Catalogue entry

As Ian Warrell has noted, there are two views of Peveril Castle here.1 The main sketch shows the castle to the north above Cave Dale. With the page turned vertically, there is a smaller drawing framed by pencil lines, showing it from the south-east, with hills to the north beyond.
For other views of Peveril Castle, Castleton and Peak Cavern, see under folio 1 verso (D22152).
