The image shows the church of St. Peter, at The Almonry-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire. Harold Wright wrote of the plate, '...there can be no question that The Almonry contains some of his finest etching technique or that it eminently deserves the welcome it has received as one of the most romantic of all his prints, possessing, too, a strong human appeal." (Comstock, p. 156).
