    This view of Windsor Castle shows the South and East fronts of the Upper Ward. They had been remodelled by Hugh May, architect to King Charles II, in the 1670s, who also created the southern and eastern terraces that can also be seen.  May's reconstruction was both sympathetic to the existing castle and a deliberate attempt to create a slightly austere 17th-century version of a "neo-Norman" castle.  Edward III?s Tower can be seen on the far left which May also rebuilt incorporating larger windows but retaining the height and dimensions of the medieval building.
