Catalogue entry

This drawing runs on to the left on folio 119 verso opposite (D09348), with a further narrow continuation to the right of the composition on folio 121 recto (D09350). The sketches between folios 117 verso and 126 recto (D09344, D09356) were made around Antony, Cornwall, a village south of the St Germans or Lynher River west of the River Tamar and Plymouth; the view here is from near St James the Great’s Church, looking north-east over the village and river. The subjects as far as folio 127 recto (D09358) are all identified or presumed sites within a few miles in and around Plymouth, suggesting a series of fairly short excursions.
