Writing Task 1 Practice - Describing Maps

The map describes the changes that had taken place in the town of Brinslow between 1990 and 2005.

In general, the most significant feature of the map is that Brinslow had become less natural and more industrially developed.

In 1990, trees and housing were the two most dominant parts of Brinslow. They were built and located in the majority of areas in this town. A school, a hospital and a parking area were created in the North East, whereas the railway station which was positioned at the West was the only transportation link of the town.

25 years later, fewer houses and trees were available, giving space to the birth of a supermarket in the East and larger blocks of accommodation. The school, hospital, parking area and lake remained in where they were in 1990, whereas a new factory and airport were developed.

The transportation growth of Brinslow was also marked by the extension of the railway network and a newly-created ferry.
