A view across the River Thames in the county of Berkshire, from Eton to the buildings clustered on the Windsor bank. Towering above the riverside houses are the buildings of Windsor Castle and in particular the famous Round Tower. The tower sits on an artificial mound or 'motte', the original being built by Henry II in c1170. The present tower is a remodelling under George IV in the 1820s. The castle has always been a Royal residence, a retreat from the centre of London.
