In 1824 Turner travelled north from London to visit Walter Fawkes in Yorkshire, passing through Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk on his journey. His choice of this route was no doubt influenced by his work on the proposed continuation of the 'Coast' project up the east side of England. However, once he began to make for the ' Views in England and Wales' venture in the following year, this sketchbook provided subject matter for of Colchester, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and Orford, as well as Aldeburgh (cat.no.36).
