This plan was published in William Maitland's 'History of London from its Foundation to the Present Time'. The plan's title features in cartouche at bottom left, with the arms of William Beckford, Alderman of Billinsgate, and William Stephenson, Aldermen of Bridge Ward, down the left side of the plate. The compass star and scale bar are at top centre. At top left and bottom right are illustrated views of the churches of St Mary and St. Botolph. Engraved by Cole, Maitand's ward plans were largely derived from Strype's plans, with the illustrations copied from West & Tow's 'Prospect Views of Ancient Churches' of 1736.
