35 of the drawings depict Stoke House in Erlestoke, near Devizes, an important country house in Wiltshire demolished in 1950. They provide a unique record of the house and its Georgian gardens, including the Grecian temple, tomb, dairy, and two views of the Moss House, the only known illustration of this Wiltshire garden feature. Other drawings depict villages near Erlestoke with an emphasis on picturesque subjects such as Neo-Gothic cottages and working watermills, and the gardens at Stourhead.
