This plan of part of Cardiganshire shows the county town on the north bank of the River Teify as it enters Cardigan Bay. Further inland, the landscape is dominated by moorland and the peaks of the Presely Mountains, represented by dense brushwork interlining ('hachuring'). The huge blue stones that make up the ancient ceremonial site of Stonehenge came from these mountains - a journey of some 200 miles.
