PLAN of the Intended Navigable Canal form LEEDS to SELBY, proposded to cumminicate in the TOWNSHIP of HOLBECK, with the CANAL now making betweed LEEDS & LIVERPOOL, with a View of the Rivers AIRE and CALDER
A large scale plan of a proposed navigable canal from Leeds to Selby, England. The proposed canal is symbolized by a single thick and solid line, while the existing water system is shown as double-lined. The numbers along the River Aire appear to correspond to features along the river, but as yet remain unknown. Seats appear to be symbolized by small vingettes. The large illustrations accompany a different article on page 353 concerning artifacts found near Reculver, Kent.
The scale was calculated from the map's scale bar, and the coordinates were derived via georeferencing.
