  1. Google Earth Canal & River Map.

    The NLS maps are very good for old routes, I use both those and the CRT maps, missing channels, locks and wharves to put back on the map for the bow back rivers.
  2. Google Earth Canal & River Map.

    Trying to map the Bow Back rivers and it isn't easy easy.
  3. Google Earth Canal & River Map.

    Oxford canal features now added to the map, I'm doing the Lee & Stort next if anyone has anything to add.
  4. Google Earth Canal & River Map.

    I'll be updating this soon, I had a bit of a rest from doing it. The main update will be the Oxford canal, but also a Viking canal.
  5. Google Earth Canal & River Map.

    Can we bring this thread back on topic with regards feedback on my map, although the tramway map is very relevant thanks. But does anyone have info about the Gayton to Northampton tramway? chris

    Thanks Kathryn It looks like it pretty much follows what became the tow path
  9. Google Earth Canal & River Map.

    Normal feedback process is via the contact us button on the website, but I'm making notes of comments here as well. Kathryn Do you have a map showing the full extent of the tramway, what i have i got from the Blisworth village website. The other tramway I'm trying to trace in that area is the Gayton to northampton tramway. Chris

  11. Google Earth Canal & River Map.

    I've done the Dartford Creek but it won't appear on the map until i do my next upload. Dartford Creek i have stopped where 2 weirs are shown on the 1894 25inch OS map & its where the light railway now crosses. Chris
  12. Google Earth Canal & River Map.

    Think I can answer my own question as it looks like it was navigable to just below Deptford bridge as there are no wharfs past that point.
  13. Google Earth Canal & River Map.

    Thanks Scholar Gypsy I'll check limehouse basin, I think I did show the now filled in original cut it's a bit messy around there so I may have to change some colours. I'll also add Deptford Creek, how far is it navigable? Chris

    Done a minor update to the Oxford canal and the old Arbury canals, major Oxford canal update soon.
  15. Plane Under Pontcysyllte Aqueduct?

    In the 80's the guys in the boatyard at Trevor told me that the AWACS from RAF Valley would sometimes fly low down the valley and over the aqueduct. The wingspan of hawk trainers flown from valley is 9.39m.
