Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, this drawing shows the view north-west to Ladybridge, west of Tamworth Castle, on the left, with St Editha’s Church on the right, with what appears to be an earlier bridge where the modern Bolebridge Street crossing now runs. The latter forms the eastern sector of a road system which also crosses the river a little to the west along Ankerdrive. These and other developments obscure the view. Turner’s inscription ‘6 4 3’ above the church indicates the sequence of windows along the corresponding sections of its clerestory.
