my writing: (161 words in total)
The maps indicate the changes of the village in Stokeford in two specific year of 1930 and 2010.
It is apparent that it used to have two farmlands in the village in 1930, whereas all farms disappeared, replacing by newly constructed houses in 2010.
First looking at the map of 1930, the villagers lived alongside the River Stoke, and a main road with a bridge was built to connect the northern side of the river. In the western of the main road, few shops and a post office were established between houses, neighbor by a farmland. Another farmland was on the east side of the river. Large houses encompassed by gardens and a primary school could be seen in the west area as well.
Moving to the second map, in 2010, much scenery was turned into accommodations, including two farms and the shops. The grand villa and the primary school were expanded, while the former was converted its function to a retirement home.

There you have it Dama, as you can see, there's not much change to be done. It's very minor details that you somehow miss and this is absolutely fine as it is a work in progress, the good thing is, you keep practicing, exercise the language in every way you can and this is the way to get better is not the best at this craft. I hope I was able to help out.
Thanks for the help.
It really helps me out with my grammar problems, and I will keep practicing.
By the way, I don't know how to attach an image on my post...so i pasted the link of the figure....
Hi Dama, thank you for appreciating our work here on EF, we do hope our help will go a long way, not only to your essays but to all your future writing reference.
Moreover, I would like to suggest one thing, note your progress, what I mean is, when you write something, draft it in a notebook or something where you will be able to compile it, this way you will be able to trace your progress and see how you manage to improve on your writing skills.
Lastly, practice proof reading your own work, one practice that I do is reading my sentences aloud, when something sounds off, that means that there is something wrong and the sentence needs to be changed or modified.
There you have it Dama, I hope to review more of your essays, practice and determination to the craft is the key to be successful.
