Wear and tear aorund the edges of this drawing have given it an irregular shape. The scale of the plan and date of execution are recorded in pencil in the bottom right corner. Major lines of communication, such as that between Credition and Newton St Cyres, are marked at intervals of one mile and tinted yellow, conforming to military cartographic convention. A blue cross at the edge of the map, near Hatherleigh, marks a reference point that may have been used for observation.
