View of castle ruins with cattle grazing in field, two men discussing the scene from a path behind a fence in the foreground, upon which a couple walk in the direction of entrance at right, a single man and a man with a woman with child carrying a basket beyond. Undated, but dedicated to the Earl of Clarendon and Rochester - Henry Hyde succeeded his father as 2nd Earl of Rochester on 2 May 1711 and his cousin as 4th Earl of Clarendon on 31 March 1723. His death in 1753 came six months after that of his only surviving son, resulting in the extinction of both earldoms.
