The church in this sketch can be identified as St Mary’s Collegiate Church at Haddington by comparison with sketches on folio 44 and 45 verso (D26000, D26003; CCLXVII 44, 45a), which were identified by Gerald Finley.1 Here the church is seen from across the River Tyne to the south-east. To the right of St Mary’s is Nungate Bridge. A boat with several figures is shown on the nearside of the river, and there is a waxing crescent moon in the sky at the top left and reflected in the water beneath.
