The Location of Morden
This small-scale image shows the Town of Morden 1 (population 6,571 in 2006) located near the western edge of the Lake Agassiz Plain. West and south of the town are several sets of north-northwest/east-southeast trending strandlines 2. Drainage is generally from west to east by Thornhill Creek 3 in the north and Deadhorse Creek 4 flowing through Morden in the centre. The latter has been dammed to create MinnewastaLake5 that supplies Morden with water and is also used for recreation.
This is an intensively farmed area with only limited woodland—dark-toned—along creek courses 6. Sections of the DLS system are clearly visible 7. They are often divided into many fields, sometimes with north/south tree shelterbelts 8. The area lies partly in township 2 and partly in township 3. The first correction line runs along the northern edge of township 2, but here the correction is only about 850 feet (254 m) 9 compared with 5280 feet (1609 m) on figure 8.52.
The main transport routes are the east/west CN line 10 that runs through Morden. In the eastern part of town it runs almost exactly east/west but changes direction both east 11 and west 12 of town. PTH 3 13 runs through the centre of Morden, and a faint light-toned line 14 is the route of a buried pipeline. PR 432 15 is the only important north/south route.
