This map of north-west Kent is drawn on rectangular sheet lines and enclosed by a black border. Fields are coloured brown where cultivated, and green or blank if untilled. Stonework buildings and structures are drawn in red ink at major settlements. Infilled or blocked areas of black or sepia ink indicate structures and buildings made from less permanent materials, such as wood. Spot heights (altitudes)are drawn in red ink figures. This is the earliest plan to distinguish pictorially between coniferous and deciduous trees.
