This drawing covers part of the valley of the River Nene as it meanders through farmland and the cottage industries of Wellingborough and Irthlingborough. Mills are depicted throughout the area, especially along the course of the Nene. With coal absent from the area, natural resources, predominantly wind and water, were used for industrial processing.
