This watercolour shows the main gatehouse of Raglan Castle, largely built by William ap Thomas in the mid fifteenth century. Raglan is not far from Hereford, Cox’s home for many years, and the artist drew several watercolours of the castle, one of which, a distant view of the ruin, was engraved by J. H. Clark.
