This plan of the Isle of Wight extends from Sandown Bay, at the bottom right, to Haven Street, at the top. The drawing is made on rectangular sheet lines, enclosed by a black border. Fields are coloured brown where cultivated, and green or blank if untilled. Stonework buildings or structures are drawn in red ink at major settlements like Newchurch and Brading. Infilled or blocked areas of black or sepia ink depict structures or buildings made from impermanent materials such as wood. Coniferous trees are distinguished pictorially from deciduous trees on this map.
