This loosely painted sketch of a footbridge near a river could be set in Cornwall or Wales, where the artist Humprhis is known to have lived.

The painting must have come to Brodsworth through Sylvia Grant-Dalton, née West (1899–1988), whose husband Charles inherited Brodsworth Hall in 1931. Amongst her family were painters, some of whom specialised in landscapes. These include her father, Reginald West, his father Edgar E. West, and his father William West (1801–1861), also known as ‘Waterfall West’, from Bristol. Humprhis married Florence West, probably William’s daughter.
