Turner’s viewpoint is the north bank of the River Tyne, looking south-west towards Prudhoe Castle from opposite the small island in the river half way between Howdene Bridge and the Hermitage along the road between Wylam and Ovingham. The bank is now wooded at this point.
The profile of the wooded island on the left is carried a little way onto folio 80 recto opposite (D12421). There are other views of the castle from across the Tyne on folios 77 verso–78 recto, 78 verso–79 recto and 80 verso–81 recto (D12416–D12419, D12422, D12423), and from close up on folios 89 verso, 90 verso, 91 verso, 92 verso and 93 verso (D12440, D12442, D12444, D12446, D12448). For the history of the building and Turner’s later watercolour, see the entry for D12417.
