This sketch, continued on folio 12 (D25784), is Turner’s fourth view of Preston from Walton-le-Dale. With the Church of St Leonard at the left and the arched bridge over the Ribble at the right (folio 12), we look towards the houses, churches and factories of Preston. See folio 8 verso (D25777) for references to the other sketches of this view.
