Drawn with the sketchbook inverted, and continued to the left on folio 125 (D06335). The view is taken from below the terrace, from which Turner had probably descended by climbing down the wooded bank, and includes the ‘Norman Gateway’, Round Tower and Winchester Gate. Identifying the subject, Hill observes that the view on this double-spread is continued to the left on folio 127 (D06339). However, as the drawings are not contiguous they must have been made separately. The North Terrace had been a favourite of Paul Sandby for his views of Windsor, although usually seen at its own level rather than from below as here.1
