Surveyed in March 1756 by Justly Watson, Director of Engineers, this colored manuscript plan shows storerooms, warehouses, apartments for European personnel, etc. In the upper right hand corner (marked by the letter A) is the "women slave yard." The inset contains a note saying "The figures 1654 are upon the keystone of the arch to the warehouse." (See also, "Cape Coast Castle, Upper Plan", image reference PRO-3 on this website).
