Irregular field boundaries enclosing agricultural land dominate the Medway Valley in Kent, around the main settlements of Hadlow, Mereworth and Yalding. Rays in red ink intersect the map, evidence of measurements taken by the surveyor between fixed triangulation points. The ruled black-sheet lines indicate the edges of the area that was copied for plans 100 and 119.
