This field sketch describes the chalk hills of the Chilterns, including a section of the Grand Junction and the Aylesbury Canals. Some field boundaries on this drawing have been revised and corrected in red ink which suggests they should be read as accurate delineations plotted from surveyed measurements. A reservoir located just above Wendover was also inserted at a later date.
