This plan of part of East Shropshire is dominated by Wenlock Edge. Running from the bottom left of the drawing to the top right, this heavily wooded limestone ridge extends for 16 miles across Shropshire. It shelves steeply into the patchwork fields of Ape Dale on its western face, and slopes gently into the Corve Dale to the east. The remains of the ancient Long Forest are also noted.
