A view of Tissington Spires, Dovedale in The Peak District National Park, Derbyshire.

Mintons rarely coloured in prints on tiles or pot stands (although perhaps the latter a little more frequently) which is unfortunate as they take to colouring particularly well. Many were apparently designed to be coloured as they are shown coloured in the pattern book and some details like foliage which often comes across as too intense is more suitably muted when overpainted.

Mintons made various series of landscapes, this appears to be from a series of holiday places, there are several Edinburgh scenes, some from Warwickshire, the Derbyshire Peak District and various other sites from around the country. The majority of these designs are found on teapot stands rather than tiles and they were presumably sold as souvenirs. Other series often appearing on teapot stands are the ruined abbey and cathedral series although again they may not be 'a series' as such as being made for the market in souvenir shops.
