This is the continuation to the right of the preceding double-page spread (D12006–D12007; Turner Bequest CLIII 7a–8) which looks along a woodland road running across a rocky ravine. The previous sketch served as the basis of a finished watercolour, West Gates to Caley Park, Otley Chevin (Bradford City Art Galleries)1 painted for Walter Fawkes of Farnley Hall about 1818, but Turner does not appear to have referred to this continuation in developing his finished composition.
