Catalogue entry

This view is taken from within Guildford itself, from near the bottom of the High Street and across Guildford Mills, the industrial part of the town including a water-pumping station and iron foundry. For a closer view of St Catherine’s, as Turner approached along the Wey from Guildford, see folio 115 verso of the sketchbook (D06316).
