The subject is continued on folio 7 recto opposite (D02250; Turner Bequest XLIX 7). The cathedral with its famous spire, at 123 metres (404 feet) the tallest in England, is seen from the south; beyond, on the other page, is the tower of St Thomas’s Church, and at the extreme right that of St Martin’s. A closer view of the Cathedral seen as a whole from the south was completed as a watercolour for Sir Richard Colt Hoare (Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery).1
Turner made a drawing of Salisbury High Street with St Thomas’s Church on folios 76 verso–77 recto (D02329–D02330).
