This pencil and ink drawing is a very rough sketch or 'foul plan' of a rural section of the North Downs in Kent. It was drawn on 17 pieces of irregularly cut paper. The map was made in the field by the draughtsman to augment the angle and distance measurements noted in his field books. The detail recorded here was incorporated into the 'fair' drawing, which survives as OSD 109/110/111, serial 380.
