|The illustration shows how a village, named Chorleywood in London had developed from 1868 to 1994. Generally, a trend of widespread, rapid development has been seen in the rural area from 1970 to 1994 than in the previous decades.
As the graph showcases, the improvements in the 19th century were limited. The Main Road was laid down in the years between 1868 to 1883. Following this, the area surrounding the Chorleywood station saw some development up to 1922. The Motorway was constructed in 1970, to pass through the Chorleywood Park and Golf Course. The introduction of railways came in 1909. The train tracks were laid out around the Chorleywood station. This was facilitated by the extensive developments in the area between 1922 and 1994.
The village expanded rapidly, especially in the years between 1970 and 1994, owing to the three different types of public transit available. It is also worth noticing how the construction and development in Chorleywood were guided by the facilities of transportation as the area surrounding the junctions saw large-scale and faster progress compared to the rest of the village. In the end, the motorways, rails and road have formed a (#) hash-like pattern to easily cover and connect the four corners of the village.

Hello and thank for your service. I would appreciate it if you evaluate my essay.
The map illustrates the development of a village near london named Chorleywood between 1868 and 1994.
From 1868 to 1883 the village was limited to a small area just off the main road leading from southwest to north, lying in the leftside of the Chorleywood Park and Golf Course which we can see in the center of the map. During next 39 years the village developed down the previous part, alongside the main road mentioned before. Another important event in this period that paved the way for later extention of the village was building a railway in 1909, runing from west to east and crossing the main road beside the village. Its station was located in the new part of chorleywood.
After bulding of the railway, Chorleywood had extended rightward anf leftward the second part, along the railway, by 1970. At the end of this period (in 1970) building a motorway, leading from north to west, ushered in the last devrlopment. The motorway crossed another main road, going from east to northwest at the north of the park. Consequently, the latest parts of the village have been sited in the areas near the roads, where the motorway crosses the main road and the railway.
To sum up, the village has gradually developed around the Chorleywood Park and Golf Course, following the building of railway and motorway during the last century.
