Catalogue entry

The sketch across the centre of this page is a continuation of a drawing of the cliffs at the mouth of the Tyne Estuary with Tynemouth Priory from folio 14 verso (D13476).
At the top of the page is a sketch of a village or town. Considering its proximity to a sketch of the mouth of the River Tyne, this may be the town of Tynemouth, or North Shields.
