A view towards Manningtree
Although the painting location for this piece is not exactly known, the view looks out across the valley to the south bank of the Stour towards Manningtree and Mistley.
The red bridge is that of Catawade and the bridge to the right was demolished in 1911.
It has been suggested that the ship in the picture may have been the ‘Telegraph’, owned by Constable's father and moored at Mistley.
