View of a house built on the cliff top at Pegwell Bay in Kent and several sailing ships near to the coast. This was the house of Sir William Garrow (1760-1840), a successful lawyer, who was involved in the development of criminal justice in the late 18th century. Between 1813-17, he served as the Attorney General. Pegwell Bay is now part of Ramsgate. Unusually, the artist, etcher and publisher is a woman. Mrs Amelia Noel (1759-1818) was a drawing mistress who exhibited landscapes between 1795 and 1804. Kent was one of her favoured locations to draw, alongside the Lake District and Ireland.
