According to Comstock "The subject is a small memorial chapel, now much more ruinous thaqn the etching shows, near Bredon Hill in Worcestershire. The quiet simplicity of the little scene bespeaks a love of the countryside, with its countless and often unnoticed small churches and chapels such as this, so appealing in their peaceful settings" (p. 228).
