A view of the Avon Gorge, a dramatic approach to the port of Bristol. In the 19th century, Isobard Kingdom Brunel designed and built the Clifton suspension bridge to span the gorge. St Vincent's Rock is an almost inaccessible cave in the cliff face, used as a hermitage.

This is one of six views of the local area made for Caleb Hillier Parry (1755-1822) a noted Bath physician, agriculturist and geologist.
