This plan was published in William Maitlan's 'History of London from its Foundation to the Present Time'. The plan's title features in cartouche at top left, with the arms of the Alderman William Benn, to whom the plan is dedicated, at top right. A view of SS Anne & Agnes Church is included at bottom left, with compass star and scale bar at bottom centre, and a view of St Botolph's church at bottom right. 

Maitland's ward plans were largely derived from Strype's plans, with the illustrations copied from West & Tow's 1736 'Prospect Views of Ancient Churches'.
