PLAN of the NAVIGABLE CANAL now making from (near) the City of COVENTRY to the City of OXFORD
A plan of the canal from Coventry to Oxford, England with East oriented at the top. It has a sylvan cartouche border, but no other ornamentation. An interesting detail are the isolated towns below the canal; details of the high streets are presumably shown but are disconnected from the system.
Details of the canal are tabled bottom centre using miles, furlongs, and chains as units, and the scale bar is in British Statute Miles. The scale was calculated from the map's scale bar, and the coordinates were derived via georeferencing. Map is reasonably accurate within a GIS.
