This plan covers part of Norfolk with the county town of Norwich depicted at lower right. Built on a hill, Norwich was of strategic importance to the invading Saxons, Romans and Normans. Light pencil interlining ('hachuring') is employed to represent the slight undulation and the low hills of this part of East Anglia. The landscape is characterised by fertile farmland with a few woodland areas and wild heaths.
