Here Turner has produced a study of the Church of St Peter and St Paul at Aldeburgh, Suffolk. The artist renders the building from north-easterly and south-westerly viewpoints. The majority of the church is sixteenth century, though the tower dates from the fourteenth. This sketch and those on Tate D18266, D18268–D18272; Turner Bequest 56, 57–59a became the preparatory material for a highly finished watercolour entitled Aldborough, Suffolk (Tate N05236). This design was engraved in 1827 by Edward Goodall for the Picturesque Views in England and Wales print publication project (Tate impression T04522).
There is a blot of blue watercolour paint at bottom left.
