Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, this drawing is evidently not by Turner, with awkward handling of recession and uncertain line. It is a view of the West Tower of Helmsley Castle, probably adapted from Turner’s study in the contemporary Chester sketchbook (Tate D05076; Turner Bequest LXXXII 3). The sketch of clouds on the recto (D02465) is possibly by the same hand.
