See Introduction to the sketchbook for the presence of a small run of sketches at Stratford-upon-Avon dating from 1833, including the three here:
i. (main sketch) The left part of a two-part panorama of the looking down the river with Holy Trinity Church at the left on this page, and continued to the right on the opposite page (D29204; Turner Bequest CCXCIII 88).
ii. (above left) Distant view down the river.
iii. (inverted in relation to main sketch) A building, presumably also at Stratford.
