Tunbridge Wells (Kent)
Medium: Pen and ink on paper
This drawing shows the area around Tunbridge Wells in Kent. The town itself is indicated by red blocks, with the surrounding forests and downs depicted by various green washes. Brushwork interlinging and shading ('hachuring') records relative relief. It is in this area in particular that the Ordnance Survey drawings surpass earlier county maps. The draughtsman has represented individual trees forming avenues and blocks, notably in Eridge Park.
