This drawing is very worn. Place names have faded considerably and are difficult to read. Two large archaeological sites are marked by concentric shapes drawn in dark lines. However, the condition of the map makes it hard to assign names to these. 'Flag', 'Staff' and 'Trig' are noted at several places, such as Upcott Penn in the top left corner. These indicate observation stations from which the surveyor took measurements in order to plot features of the landscape.
