No. 7; titled on an elaborate cartouche. View of the Wye cascading between steep cliff-faces, two couples and a child on the bank in right foreground, two fishermen in the distance, birds flying on the left. According to Smith "On the WIE about 2 miles below BUXTON, (a Place deservedly famous for its Medicinal waters and elegant Entertainment,) on the left side stand the rock which is call'd the CHEE-TOR; 'tis 147 Feet perpendicular, and the top in most Parts projects. The River at the Foot of it forms 3 pretty Cascades in running about 60 Yards. On the opposite side is a Rock in form of a THEATRE, of near the same height with the TOR. The Mountains above these Rocks rise very high, and are excellent Sheep Pastures." [see Maps K.Top.11.19.a].
