Lords Cricket Ground is shown in its current location as a square field (it had moved from its second site in 1814 to make way for the construction of the Regent's canal).

The original Oxford Market is shown in what is now Market Place. St John's Wood Farm is shown. Hamilton Terrace is shown as laid out, but with only a couple of buildings constructed along it. The original Harley and Montagu Houses are both shown.
