Woodbury Common dominates this drawing. The uncultivated land of the common is represented by sets of dashes representing grass. Woodbury Castle is indicated by concentric irregular shapes, mirroring the shape of the prehistoric earthworks. This drawing is drawn to a scale of 3 inches to 1 mile, larger than most of the other drawings, which are 2 inches to 1 mile. The larger scale reflects the need for greater detail in areas of the south coast that were particularly vulnerable to invasion.
