The Cotswold Hills dominate the landscape around Stow depicted in this plan. Rising gently from the broad, green meadows of the upper Thames, the hills form a dramatic limestone escarpment above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale. The Jurassic limestone is widely used as building material throughout the Cotswolds, giving the area its distinctive appearance. Grassland habitats and ancient beech forests are other typical features documented on the plan.
