This is an early work by Munn and is likely to be one of his first exhibits at the Royal Academy in 1799. It has been suggested that this is 'A Cottage, the Grange, Barrodale, Cumberland' which he exhibited that year as no.984, in which case the hill to the left is Causey Pike. His two other Royal Academy exhibits of 1799 were 'A Cottage in Westmorland' (no.420), and 'a Cottage at Kirkeydale, between Keswick and Buttermere' (no.977).
