Thomas Budgen surveyed the majority of the Welsh plans, and is probably author of this drawing of the Severn Estuary. The plan is a good example of the use of black and red ink to distinguish between wooden and masonry structures. Chepstow Bridge, on the River Wye, is illustrated with red piers and a black roadway.
