A view in ink of the new jail alongside the Church of the Holy Trinity at Horsley in Northumberland. The church dates mostly from the late-Norman period, and has a low apse and a west tower with a battlemented, pyramidal roof. In the porch is a Roman-era altar, taken from Featherwood, four miles to the north of Rochester. Still a serving church, it was hugely renovated in 1895.
