Turnpike roads in faded ochre run from Guildford at the top of the map through Witley, at the centre left, on to 'Aldfold' at the bottom left. The mileage appears along the route in black-ink figures. Tollgates are marked 'TG'. Open dotting is used to depict the untilled agricultural land predominant around the river valleys. The hill shading and attention to communication routes conform to the military and cartographic standards employed by the Ordnance Survey.
