The artist would have been positioned alongside the River Avon when he sketched the street scene with Tewkesbury Abbey. The river, cleverly depicted with a gentle flow, forms the foreground with historic buildings and the street leading to the view of the Abbey in the background. The horse and rider and figures in the street give movement to the composition. There is sufficient detail in the buildings for the architecture to be read.
