View of Caverswall Castle, Staffordshire, with moat and bridge. The mansion shown in this picture was built on the foundations of a 13th century castle. Originally home of the Caverswall family, the unattended castle was bought in 1615 by Matthew Cradock, who built the mansion as it still stands today.
The credit line reads “From a sketch by J. L. Pratt,” which is most likely a typo. An 1845 edition of this drawing attributes the original sketch to “H. L. Pratt,” which seems consistent with this artist’s career and work.
