This finished drawing covers parts of Northamptonshire and Leicestershire, with Rockingham Forest to the north represented by stippled treetops. Situated between the Welland and Nene valleys, and the towns of Stamford and Kettering, the forest's varied landscape includes farmland, open pasture, villages and pockets of woodland. Boughton Hall is depicted in the middle of the sheet. Formerly a monastery, it was transformed into one of the great houses of Europe in the 17th century.
