This plan of the Isle of Wight shows the River Medina flowing north into the Solent Channel, at the top of the map between West and East Cowes. The drawing is made on rectangular sheet lines, enclosed by a black border. Stonework buildings and structures are drawn in red ink at major settlements such as Newtown and Cowes. Irregular field boundaries dominate the coastal landscape. The care with which they are delineated suggests they were measured rather than estimated or sketched by the surveyor.
