Drawing showing the Isle of Thanet in Kent, including Reculver, Margate and Ramsgate. Pencil lines radiate from central points on this plan, indicating the locations from which the surveyor took angular measurements to plot the relative positions of prominent features in the landscape. The coastline is carefully observed. Rocky outcrops are noted pictorially and sand indicated by a dotted yellow tint. The pier at Ramsgate is recorded along with the harbour gate. Several corrections appear in black ink. Windmills are shown in elevation.
