Previously in the "Unknown" section, an old unlabelled engraving from Christopher Skottowe's Collection.
Initially the suggestion was made by
Simon Davies, based on the similarity of the towers, that this was St. Mary at
Westwood, Wilts. This
the present-day church. Phil Draper identified it as St. James in Devizes. The similarity of St. James' tower, and that of St. Mary in Westwood is remarkable.
