Draughtsman: [Hyett, William]
Medium: Pencil and ink on paper
The most obvious features of this plan are major roads coloured yellow, with their cumulative lengths noted at intervals of one mile. North is not orientated towards the top. As a result,Watford appears to the left of St Albans, and the boundary between Middlesex and Hertfordshire (a dashed black-ink line)runs from the top left of the map down through Elstree to Hadley. The paper carries a watermark from the James Whatman Turkey Mill.
