Hampstead Heath was only a short walk from Constable's London home. This was one of his favourite locations to paint, with its scrubby landscape of sand-hills and trees. In this painting, a horse and carriage pass by Branch Hill Pond at the lower right-hand corner. The central figure in red almost aligns with the distant church spire in Harrow village.
