Sand dunes and marshland dominate the landscape of Carmarthen Bay on the Bristol Channel at the bottom of this chart. The map is drawn on three sheets pieced together with detail extending over the joins. Place names are difficult to read where the drawing is ripped and worn, but the path of the River Taff is clearly plotted from centre left of the map, crossing the county until it reaches the sea at Laugharne. Archaeological details are documented even though this did not become obligatory until 1816.
