    This is one of the earliest dated drawings by Miles Edmund Cotman, the eldest son of John Sell Cotman, drawn when he was only 16. Unsurprisingly it shows the strong influence of his father, both stylistically and in terms of the subject. A drawing of the north door of Framlingham Earl church by J.S. Cotman, dated 1816, is in the collection of Norwich Castle Museum.

     

    Framlingham Earl is four miles south-east of Norwich and the church of St. Andrew is famous for its classic Norfolk round tower.
