Maps of Swingfield
Scale: 1 : 21120
Description: This is a very rough pencil and ink plan of a rural section of the North Downs in Kent. It was drawn on pieces of irregularly cut tracing paper, which were then joined and mounted on thick paper. The map was draughted in the field to augment the angle and distance measurements recorded in the Ordnance Survey field books. Heavy brushwork interlining ('hachuring') depicts relief, while dotted lines indicate field boundaries around agricultural land. These are particularly evident near the main settlements of Ellham and Stelling Minnis.
