This view looking south-west towards the Gibside estate is from downstream on the Derwent near Winlaton Mill, north-east of the two views from Winlaton Scar on folios 9 verso–10 recto (D12267, D12268; CLVI 5a–6) and 10 verso (D12269; CLVI 6a). Old Hollinside manor and the Column of British Liberty on the Gibside estate are cursorily indicated on the skyline towards the centre. There is a similar view on the verso (D12273), among studies of Hylton Castle.
The pencil number ‘8’ may obscure or reinforce John Ruskin’s customary red ink foliation, which is evident only faintly and intermittently in this much-rearranged book (see the introduction to the sketchbook).
