New waterways map!

I've finally got around to transferring my Canal Tube Map into the right format for the graphics program i use nowadays (Photoshop) and while doing so i decided to update it. So proudly presenting version 3.0 of the map which is now a Canal and Navigable River Map.

I first created it a number of years ago, seeking to create a Birmingham Canal Navigations map in the style of the London Tube Map, over time the map has expanded to include canals like the Stratford-upon-Avon and navigable rivers. The style has also deviated from the London tube map somewhat.

Version 3.0 has the following updates:
  • New font for titles, no reason for changing really apart from the fact i really like the typewriter font now used!
  • Amends to a number of canals including Titford and W&E.
  • Rivers now more clearly shown
  • A few extra places shown
I hope you find it useful or at least mildly diverting...

Aqueducts (7) : Yarningale Aqueduct

The shortest of the three cast-iron aqueducts on the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal. It carries the canal over a small stream near Claverdon.

Wootton Wawen to Yarningale Aqueduct

The Stratford-upon-Avon Canal has 3 cast-iron aqueducts. Two of which, the Edstone and the Wootton Wawen i have visited before but yesterday i walked up from Wootton Wawen to the third aqueduct, Yarningale. A great canal walk too in beautiful weather, the scenery in that part of the world is hard to beat to be honest. You can see the photos i took here.
