Fielding is known to have made and exhibited several watercolours of Byland Abbey in Yorkshire at the Old Watercolour Society, now known as the Royal Society of Watercolour. He exhibited views of the Abbey there in 1837, 1838, 1844 and 1852. Along with views of 'Raby Castle' (WAG 8185), it was one of his most popular subjects and he returned to it frequently.
