The county boundary with Sussex is marked on the right edge of this drawing by a black pecked line. Although this drawing predates the obligatory recording of archaeological sites, Roman remains and Rowland's Castle are represented to the bottom right. Ancient burial mounds are marked in many places by a circle and the word 'Tumulas'. Fir trees are marked at Draxford, to the central left of the map, the draughtsman distinguishing between these coniferous trees and deciduous ones. A large compass-drawn circle with a marked radius appears at the top of the drawing.
