A view of Dilston Hall, at Dilston, near Corbridge, Northumberland, at one time the seat of James Radclyffe, 3rd Earl of Derwentwater, with three columns of text lamenting his death. Radclyffe, grandson of Charles II and Moll Davis, began the construction of a grand mansion to replace the old Hall, but the works was never completed as he was beheaded for his part in the 1715 Jacobite Rebellion. Dilston Hall came into the hand of the Fofeit Estates Commission. After a corrupt sale was annulled in 1731, the Greenwich Hospital Act 1735 directed that the estate's income should be used to complete the construction of Greenwich Hospital. The Greenwich Commissioners ordered its demolition in 1765 (the year before the publication of this plate), leaving standing only the castle tower and the chapel: the castle is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and a Grade I listed building.
