PLAN of the NAVIGABLE CANAL, now making from CHESTERFIELD, in the COUNTY of DERBY, to the RIVER TRENT, near STOCKWITH in the COUNTY of NOTTINGHAM, Survey'd in 1770
The map shows complications of planning the canal in the context of water supply complying with the Act of parliament in 1771.
A plan of the canal from Chesterfield to Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. A large cartouche of a sylvan pattern dominates the centre, while the rest of the map has little ornament. It is decently accurate within a GIS. The scale was calculated from the map's scale bar, and the coordinates were derived via georeferencing.
