This drawing covers parts of Northamptonshire and its neighbouring counties. Their boundaries are indicated by a red pecked line. The road running down the middle of the sheet is Ermine Street, the ancient Roman road from Chichester to York, passing through Lincolnshire. Right of centre is Grimsthorpe Park, with its avenues, trees, reservoir and lodge painstakingly illustrated.
