This shows Abbot Reginald's Gateway which is situated just off the market place in Evesham. St Nicholas's Church is visible beyond with Walker Hall on the right.

This on-the-spot sketch evidently dates from a tour of Worcestershire and the Wye area in the summer of 1859. Callow exhibited `A Summer's Evening on the Avon, at Evesham' at the Society of Painters in Water-colours in 1860 and two views on the Wye.
