Newtown Barry

View of the estate at Newtownbarry, showing a man fishing from the riverbank, near a bridge. Other figures include a woman with a child, and a second man. Both men wear broad-brimmed hats. In the background a steeple is visible, and by the bridge some tall buildings, possibly a mill. Trees and a backdrop of hills complete the scene of peaceful rural life.
