This drawing covers part of the Nene Valley as the river meanders through farmland and the industries of Northamptonshire. Mills are depicted throughout the area, especially along the river's course. The staples of Northamptonshire's industry at the beginning of the 19th century were wool, lace, silk and shoemaking. With no indigenous coal supply, local industrialists relied principally upon natural resources for industrial processing, particularly wind and water.
