This plan covers the Shropshire Northern Plain, near the border with Cheshire and Staffordshire. The area is characterised by small woodlands, formal parkland, meres (lakes), mosses, pools and other wetland habitats. Mills are indicated near the town of Market Drayton, central towards the top, where about two hundred workers were employed in the manufacture of horse-hair products.
