Catalogue entry

Turner has used the right-hand half of the page for his main sketch, although there is a separate drawing of a line of hills towards the top left.
The view is currently unidentified, but falls between studies of Exeter on folio 66 recto (D09756) and Bickleigh, in the Exe Valley to the north on folio 71 recto (D09764).
