A view of the ruins of Brochel Castle, with two figures seated on a path below and a dog standing beside them in the foreground. Brochel Castle was built in the late 15th century and was occupied until 1671. It was an ingenious castle design as it was built on top of a 15m high stack, making it a great coastal vantage point.

Tooley as 'the most important colour plate book on British Topography'.
