Catalogue entry

This page comprises various separate sketches of Warwick. At the bottom left Warwick Castle is seen to the west from east of the Avon bridge. At the top left is a detail of the tower of St Mary’s Church, with what appears to be a view of a receding street beside it; and at the top right is St Nicholas’s Church from the south (a view now obscured by trees).
At the right, St Nicholas’s appears again from the south-east, inverted relative to the other views, in a brief continuation of the prospect of the castle and town on folio 40 recto opposite (D22050). For other views of Warwick, see under folio 38 verso (D22047).
