PLAN of the proposed NAVIGABLE CANAL, from ANDOVER to REDBRIDGE, in the County of SOUTHAMPTON, Surveyd in 1770
A relief map depicting canals, rivers, bridges, and settlements along the canal. The cartouche is elaborated with scrolls.
A plan of a proposed canal between Andover, Hampshire, and Millbrook, a suburb of Southampton. Like the majority of other canal maps in this collection, it is quite sparse in ornamentation, with some hatching to denote elevation and a sylvan style cartouche. The details of the locks are outlined in the table to the bottom right. The map is oriented with East at its top, and the scale bar is in English miles. Coordinates were derived via georeferencing, and the scale was calculated from the map's scale bar. This canal was eventually built with perhaps some small modifications. A good candidate for rubber sheeting as it does not match up well within the GIS.
