Pencil orientation lines can be seen around the edges of this drawing. An arrow protruding from Wells indicates the link-point between this and another drawing. The flat lands of Burtle Heath and Kings Sedge Moor occupy half the drawing. Field boundaries and the manmade drainage system are recorded. Toll gates are marked 'TG' along the main turnpike road from Shepton Mallet to Somerton, which forms the edge of the drawing.
