The painting offers a view from Ethelfreda's Rock by Castle Bridge and the River Mersey, looking towards the potters house close to Astmoor; in the foreground there are bathing parties and parkland in Runcorn. The paddle steamers, sailing ships and barges on the river and the factory chimneys indicate the beginning of an industrial era.
