Inscription: 

Inscribed: "Mill at Coldrenick/...Jan 7. 1808" (on part of the old backing); signed "Prout" lower right.

Notes: 

In 1812 Prout published a set of soft-ground etchings entitled Picturesque Delineations in the Counties of Devon and Cornwall. This watercolor may relate to this publication as the etchings' scenes of aged rural buildings are reminiscent of this cottage and mill.
