This is the left half of a double-page spread continued to the right on folio 5 recto (D11521; Turner Bequest CXLVIII 3, now bound opposite), recording the view from the churchyard of Kirkby Lonsdale Church, looking north and north-east up the Lune Valley. The sketch formed the basis of two colour studies (Tate D17187, D17186; Turner Bequest CXCVI W, V) and of a studio watercolour Kirkby Lonsdale Churchyard (on the London art market, 2012)1 engraved for Thomas Dunham Whitaker’s History of Richmondshire and published in 1822. Turner continued the panorama around to the right, to include a view of Ingleborough, in the Yorkshire 2 sketchbook (Tate D11125; Turner Bequest CXLV 58a). Elsewhere in the present sketchbook Turner drew a similar view of the Lune Valley hills, from the south and slightly further to the left on folio 2 verso (D11520; Turner Bequest CXLVIII 2a). The present writer has dated Turner’s sketches of Kirkby Lonsdale to Friday 9 August and Saturday 10 August 1816.
