A Chart Showing the Course of the River Eden near Carlisle and of a Breach Neccessary to be Repaired, a platt of certen grounde about Carleile, for demonstration of a breech of the river of Eaden, Jan. 1572
Medium: Ink on paper
This manuscript plan of the Carlisle area dates from 1572-73. Its purpose seems to be to demonstrate a breech of the river Eaden that is in need of repair. The point where this repair is necessary is highlighted by a pointing hand. Carlisle is shown as a walled city in a pictorial fashion typical of Tudor map makers. North, East and west are indicated on the plan, as is the way to Scotland.
