Archdeacon Fisher became Constable's closest friend and he made long visits to him in the Close at Salisbury in the summer of 1820 and in July 1829. Constable painted several sketches looking from the house towards the ridge running westwards from Harnham Hill. This painting corresponds to the left half of another sketch, dated 12 July 1829 (V&A, London), which is similarly painted with thick impasto and characteristic tiny dabs of red.
