Pencil rays radiate from the centre of several circles on this plan. These were used to measure the distance between fixed points in the surveyed area. Calculations are faintly visible on the left edge of the drawing. The paper is watermarked "E & P", standing for Edmeads and Pine. The numerical annotations running alongside the main road indicate the distance in miles from Alresford to Bishop's Sutton. Like all major communications routes in the Survey, this road is tinted yellow.
