This spectacular panoramic view from the south shows the rear of Chirk Castle illuminated by the setting sun. The building is shown as it was before Pugin redesigned the stables. In the valley on the left is the castle mill and on the right the bath house, of which there is no longer any trace today. The rolling hillside is enlivened by estate activities such as charcoal burning (to the left) and haymaking (in the centre).
