In this drawing Salaway makes a detailed study of all the features of the road under the management of the Kensington Turnpike Trust. Ditches draining the road are faithfully recorded and lamp posts are individually numbered and represented three-dimensionally complete with shadow. Open fields, depicted on both sides of the road, tell of Kensington's past as a prosperous rural parish.
