This drawing covers the land either side of the Ex River. Exeter, the largest settlement, is shown in great detail. A barracks, poor house and 'New Gaol' are shown by red blocks on the outskirts of the settlement. The main road leading into Exeter is tinted yellow to indicate its status as a major communication route. A tollgate, marked 'T. Gate", appears on this road at the entrance to the town. A tributary of the Ex River features a series of locks, annotated and marked by a break in the green line that represents water. Lime Kilns are noted in the area. To the left of the drawing, above Whitstone, a dot with a pencil line radiating from it indicates a point from which the surveyor took an angular measurement to plot the path leading from the main road to Springs.
