The collection comprises a single volume containing typed pages. The volume records 50 individual fords in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire. For each ford, the following information is provided: location, map reference, plan, date visited, road type, road surface, depth, length, pedestrian crossings, and 'AORI' (details of access, warning signs, and alternative routes). Most pages are accompanied by sketches and black and white photographs.
The volume is arranged alphabetically by name of ford, within counties in the order given above. There is an index at the back.
All visits to fords were undertaken in April, May, June and September 1964.
