This photograph is one of 31 prints Fenton made of Windsor Castle, the Home Park and Great Park in 1860. When selecting the subjects for these views, Fenton did not seek access to areas normally barred to the public. Instead, he understood his audience would prefer to see images relating to their own experiences of the castle. Therefore, all the photographs in this series emphasise the Castle's role as a public monument, rather than as a royal residence.
