    Paul Sandby made three trips to Wales in the 1770s, visiting North Wales in 1770 and 1771 and South Wales from 21 August to 4 September 1773. He toured North Wales in the company of Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn Bt., collecting material for the 2nd Welsh Aquatint series, XII Views in North Wales, finally published in 1776. The two companions arrived at Caernarvon on 28 August and stayed until 31 August. Sandby's 'A collection of one hundred & fifty select views in England, Wales, Scotland & Ireland' published in 1783 contains three views of Caernarvon engraved by W. Watts.

    Similar compositions to the present work are in the collections of The Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester and Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.
