Follows south still to Skegness and King’s Lynn, and east to Cromer and Eccles-on-Sea

In the top right hand corner an inset map of the coastline from Hornsea to Burlington and Flamborough Head in Yorkshire, oriented west at top.

There is a decorative cartouche styled to appear like a rock, or cliff face with flowers, and with a compass rose on the top. The title of the map is presented in English and in Dutch. Across the map a web of rhumb lines (or loxodromes) and annotations of detailed soundings, sand banks and water channels.
