This plan covers parts of Warwickshire and Worcestershire, with the Severn Valley depicted in the middle. The River Avon meanders north-eastwards from Tewkesbury (where it meets the River Severn) to Stratford on Avon, where, after 17 locks, it joins the Stratford-on-Avon Canal. Below the Avon, near the bottom of the sheet, the Cotswolds form a dramatic limestone escarpment above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale. Jurassic limestone, used as a building material throughout the area, gives the Cotswolds its distinctive look.

In the top right hand corner of the drawing, a red cross marks Chipping Norton Church. This was a base used by the draughtsman for orientation purposes. In 1816, it became obligatory to record archaeological sites on the plans. Here ancient camps are marked at Farmington and near Charlton Abbots. The words "TP Gate" appear on several roads, notably at Wincombe towards the top, indicating a turnpike gate. The accurate and precise record these drawings provide of the road network sets them apart from earlier county maps.
