A high chalk ridge dominates the coastline at the bottom of this plan of the Isle of Wight, ending in the sea at the far left, where the three pinnacles of the Needles rise to a height of about 30 metres. The drawing is made on rectangular sheet lines, enclosed by a black border. Stonework buildings or structures are drawn in red ink at major settlements like Yarmouth at the top of the map.
