Turnpike roads, shown in faded yellow ochre, run from Guildford at the top of the map to Witley in the centre left and "Aldfold" in the bottom left. Black-ink figures record the mileage along these routes. Tollgates are marked "TG". A dotted symbol depicts the untilled agricultural land that dominate the landscape around the valley of the River Wye, from Guildford to Godalming. The stippling technique commonly used to depict rough pasture is used here for the many heaths and commons of the undulating Surrey lowlands.
