The angle observed from the station on Danbury Steeple, between Hatfield Broad Oak and Thaxted, was 30° 33′ 40′′; this, with the including sides, 85094 and 101330 feet, gives the following triangle: Danbury 57 2 20, which gives the distance between Thaxted and Hatfield Broad Oak = 51566 feet. Stoke i distance from Thaxted Spire to Lavenham Steeple. Again, the angle observed at Danbury, between Thaxted and Stoke was 66° 43′ 8′′; this, with the sides which form it, Danbury and Thaxted, Danbury and Stoke, gives the following triangle: Danbury Stoke 122630 63951 66° 43′ 8′′ 64 51 36, from which we find 124430 feet, for the dis Thaxted tance from Thaxted to Stoke. The angle at Lavenham Steeple, between Stoke and Thaxted, was likewise observed, and found to be 89° 10′ 30′′, which, with the distances of these latter stations from Lavenham, 48039 and 124430 feet, gives Lavenham 89° 10′ 30′′ 68 7 O 22 42 30, from which we find 115480 feet to be the The angle at Danbury, between Southweald and Hatfield Broad Oak, was found to be 54° 44′ 30′′. The distances from Danbury to Southweald and Hatfield Broad Oak have been already found, the former being 77622 feet, and the latter 85096 feet; from these we get the triangle, 54° 44′ 30′′ Hatfield Broad Oak 57 33 25, which gives 75104 feet, for the distance between Hatfield Broad Oak and Southweald Steeples. In order to connect the preceding triangles with those carried on for the survey of the south-western part of Essex, and of Hertfordshire, stations were selected on Hampstead Heath, and on Highbeech in Epping Forest, to which the great theodolite was taken, as related in the article detailing the particulars of the operations in 1799. The triangles making this connection are the following. The first, namely, 28° 58′ 10′′ 94 49 5 Langdon Hill 56 12 45, is had from the included angle at Severndroog Tower, 28° 58′ 10′′, and the sides Severndroog Tower and Southweald, Severndroog Tower and Langdon Hill: the first is 73787 feet, and the second 88470 feet. From these data, we obtain the distance between the station on Langdon Hill and that on Southweald Steeple 43001 feet. Severndroog Tower Names of Stations.

A difference of 4 feet on such a distance, all things considered, is not a large quantity. Names of Stations.

Brentwood As it became necessary to ascertain the situation of a high building near Berkhamstead, which, for distinction sake, I shall style the Gazebo, the instrument was removed from the station on Highbeech, to another farther west of it, as some trees obstructed the view of this object from the former. To get the distance from St. Paul's to this new station, the distance between it and the old one was measured, and found = 460 feet: the angles in the following triangle were also observed.

This angle, with the measured distance between the stations, and also the distance from the Gazebo to the new station, which are respectively 460 and 49628 feet, gives 49987 feet, for the distance between the new station on Highbeech and Berkhamstead Gazebo.
