1 : 31680 The Ordnance Survey took particular care in plotting the south coast of England, as this was the area most immediately vulnerable to invasion. This plan notes military barracks at Selsea, Aldwick and Bognor to the bottom right of the plan. Buildings are blocked in red and black ink and infilled at Chichester, in the centre of the plan, and Arundel, at the right. A poor house and pest house are located a considerable distance beyond the boundaries of Chichester.
1 : 31680 Produced against the background of the Napoleonic Wars, these Ordnance Survey drawings exhibit a hightened interest in defence, particularly along the vulnerable south coast. Military barracks are recorded at Hastings, 'Bopeep' and Bexhill. A faded aquamarine wash defines the coastline from Pevensey Bay to Hastings, with red circles indicating observation stations used to plot the distinctive features of the land being surveyed. Inland, agricultural land (delineated by field boundaries) and woodland dominate the landscape.
1 : 31680 .Turnpike roads in faded ochre run from Guildford at the top of the map through Witley, at the centre left, on to 'Aldfold' at the bottom left., The mileage appears along the route in black-ink figures., Tollgates are marked 'TG'., Open dotting is used to depict the untilled agricultural land predominant around the river valleys., The hill shading and attention to communication routes conform to the military and cartographic standards employed by the Ordnance Survey.
