A turnpike road, coloured ochre yellow, forms a boundary from Hascombe at the top right of the map to 'Aldfold' at the bottom. Common land and dense woodland dominate the region to the left around Hindhead Valley and the Devil's Punchbowl.Commonland is indicated by open dotting. Woods and trees could provide hindrance or cover for the movement of a regiment, so these are recorded in painstaking detail. Individual trees are depicted with a small vertical stem and a shadow at the base. There are also more general representations of groups of treetops.
