A view across the gently undulating landscape of the Sussex Downs. In the foreground are a scattered herd of cattle, resting and grazing, with a cluster of trees to the right. In the middleground, as the landscape dips slightly, a small, dense woodland contained within a boundary wall encircles the castle, which is barely visible above the tree line. Beyond, the landscape becomes more level and recedes into the distance. The sun is setting on the horizon with the sky suggesting unsettled weather ahead.
