This partly finished plan of the Suffolk coastline shows only roads and settlements to the left, but land use and relief detail have been added to the right. Original protraction lines remain in pencil: these represent the first plottings from the field book of the area. The handwritten note pasted at the bottom of the plan may have been trimmed from the margin.
