The original construction, a motte and bailey (an artificial hill with with a fenced area at the top), was built for William the Conqueror around the year 1080. Originally part of a ring of defences around London, Windsor Castle gradually became a popular Royal residence because of the good hunting in the nearby forest. The Round Tower, along with the original outer wall, was erected for King Henry II. This image is taken from the lower courtyard leading up to one of the wings of the castle. The castle is a beautiful structure housing inside the home of the knights of the Garter the oldest order of chivalry in the world, St Georges chappel is just to the left of this image (out of frame) this holds the tombs of Henry the 8 and Edward the fourth amongst others.I took this image with the nikon p5100 compact camera.
