Rimmer was an artist and architectural historian - he published many books examining historic buildings, illustrating them himself. He published 'Pleasant Spots Around Oxford' in 1878, for which this is a prepatory sketch. The published engravings were done by Percy Roberts after Rimmer's sketches. Woodstock is a market town north-west of Oxford. The name Woodstock is from Old English, meaning a 'clearing in the woods'.
