Maps of Wye with Hinxhill
Description: The dominant feature of this drawing is the use of different shades of green to distinguish fields and woods. The draughtsman has depicted individual trees and recorded the position of clearings in Chilham Park. Such detail is testimony to the meticulousness of the Survey. The Stone Street Causeway, a Roman road, is shown to the left of the plan. Connecting Lympne to Canterbury, it is likely to have been the route taken by Henry II's men on their way to murder Archbishop Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral on 29 December 1170.
