Claude Buckle's Water Colour of the west end of Winchester Cathedral again demonstrates the artists architectural knowledge and water colour skills. The original artwork of this carriage print exists and can be seen on page 176 in Railway Journeys in Art vol 6.

The pencil sketch shown left is of West Front (on the right of the main picture) and illustrates the typical sketches that Buckle would have made of the Cathedral.
