Terrain Description

Predominantly residential terrain which has expanded, and is expanding, over the decades in piecemeal fashion, leading to a variety of street patterns. The newer estates are interspersed with paths and open space. Intersected NS and EW by two main roads. Not entirely flat but nothing too strenuous.

Purple hatching indicates building sites not to be entered.
