BATTLEMENTS AND TOWERS OF WINDSOR'S PALACE-CASTLE

BATTLEMENTS AND TOWERS OF WINDSOR'S PALACE-CASTLE

From the Park by the East Terrace Garden two lines of towers meet to form the east and south fronts (top). On the extreme right is the Prince of Wales Tower, and next the Chester and Clarence Towers, and, at the corner, the Victoria Tower. On the left we have the George IV Gateway, which leads out into the Long Walk. The lower view shows the famous Round Tower surmounted by a flagstaff. This main structure of the castle dates from the time of Edward III,. but was heightened by Sir Jeffry Wyatville in the reign of George IV.
