There remains to stroll in the famous Great Park, with its magnificent avenue of the Long Walk, three miles in length, flanked by its double lines of glorious elms, and terminating in the height of Snow Hill, which is crested by Westmacott’s equestrian statue og [King] George III.” (p. 81)

In the distance, of course, you can see Windsor Castle. The trees seen here succumbed to Dutch elm disease at the start of World War II, and were replanted starting in 1946. The new trees are a mix of horse chestnut and London plane.
