A view in ink of ''Shotwick'' (Shockerwick House) near Bath in Somerset, drawn in August 1790 by S.H. Grimm. This was built by Bath architect and master builder John Wood the Elder in c. 1750 for William Wiltshire. The east fa├žade had a 5 bay block of 2 1/2 storeys and lower wings on each side. In the centre there are four giant Corinthian columns and a pediment. This view also gives a idea of the 18th century landscaping of the park.
