This painting depicts a view of Grange village in Borrowdale in the Lake District. It shows the Lakeland valley in summer with clouds gathered over the fells which rise beyond the valley. On the right stands a small stone mill, partially obscured by a stand of tall trees; two men stand conversing on the path which fords the river, crossing the composition diagonally from the lower right corner. In the foreground two women pause in a patch of sunlight to talk to a third woman seated on a log beside the river. To their left a man on horseback turns in his saddle to regard them. To the extreme left, a small flock of sheep are accompanied by a sheepdog; in the middle distance a herd of cattle stand in the river beyond. The artist has dramatically altered the appearance of the valley by exaggerating the size of the fells in this painting which resemble the Scottish highlands and show a considerable amount of 'artistic licence'.
