These sketches show aspects of the beach and harbour at Great Yarmouth on the Norfolk coast. St Nicholas’ Church can be seen in the upper most view (see Tate D18189–D18190; Turner Bequest CCIX 17a–18). In the central view Turner depicts a structure on wooden stilts, perhaps an observation platform, with the old pier beyond and boats beached on the sand (see Tate D18187; Turner Bequest CCIX 16a). At rear, and orientated inversely to the other drawings, is a view of Yarmouth which extends onto the folio opposite (Tate D18205; Turner Bequest CCIX 25a). It shows the pier and the Britannia Monument in the distance.
