Maps of Weymouth and Portland
Description: The long stretch of sand in this plan is Chesil Beach. Once linked to Spain by well- established trade routes, it is also locally famed for reported sightings of the fabled Veasta Sea Monster. Signal points are marked along coast leading down to the beach, the most notable being Abbotsbury Castle Signal Staff on Abbotsbury Common. Pencil script records the date of execution and scale of the drawing. The words "Exhibit A" are written in blue pencil at the very edge of the sheet. A reference to the village of 'Wyke' (Wyke Regis) can be seen at the far right of the drawing.
Contibutor: Budgen, Charles
