A scheme for draining the great level of the fens, called bedford-level And for improving the navigation of Lyn-Regis. Founded upon self-evident principles in experintental philosophy and practical mathematicks, and upon historical facts.

With reflections upon all the schemes hitherto proposed for draining the fens, shewing wherein they are defective. Also observations upon artificial-scours: shewing where, and in what cases they are, or can be of use; where not. Illustrated with a map. By Tho.
