This view shows the inside of the Church of St Wilfrid in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, five miles south-west of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. The view looks west and shows bell-ringers. Among the interior details shown is the 12th-century arcade extension. On one of the columns there is a curious carving of a mermaid, although this cannot be seen in this particular view. Unfortunately the church itself was mostly destroyed in a fire of 1907.
