Julia and Winston meet in a meadow. It is there they have the sexual contact. It contrasts the very grey industrial spaces they are used to in the city. Their primal passions are unleashed in a natural setting. There is a sense of freedom here that is juxtaposed with the sense of surveillance in their room above Mr. Charington's shop.
