This plan uses different shades of green wash to distinguish woods, meadows, commons and parks. The valley of the River Severn is depicted down the middle of the sheet, flowing through the cathedral city of Worcester. Here, in its middle course, the river becomes deeper and wider, forming a floodplain where crops such as wheat and barley are grown. To the right of the sheet is the Droitwich Canal, a broad-beam canal running five and three-quarter miles past waterside mills from Droitwich Junction to the River Severn.
