7.13: Correction Line Between Townships 6 and 7 Near Carman

Correction lines occur every four townships; here, tracing the boundary between ranges 3 and 4WI 1 northward reveals the line between townships 6 and 7. At the township boundary there is a westward jog of about 672 feet (205m) 2. The jog is probably best seen one section further west 3 because it is not obscured by the existence of a road. The jog deflects the paths of three south to north roads: PTH 13 4 north of Carman 5; a gravel road two miles to the east 6; and another further east 7, running north from Homewood 8.

The area is located on the flat Lake Agassiz plain. Carman and Homewood are connected by the CN line 9 and PTH 3 10. Drainage is from west to east with the Boyne River 11 flowing through Carman. Near the eastern edge of range 4WI it has been channelized 12 and eventually joins the Norquay Drain (off the photo) which can be seen between embankments in range 3WI 13.
