River Wye Canoe Map 1
Glasbury to Hoarwithy
This is one of two strip maps for anyone wanting to explore the river Wye by canoe. Designed by canoeists for canoeists, it is very much a ‘hands on’ map – waterproof and easy to use whilst paddling down the river – it even floats! It shows all the essential paddling information as clearly as possible at a large scale – 1:36,000.
The two maps cover all 161 km of the most popular canoeing stretch of the river from Glasbury to Chepstow. These are ‘strip maps’ – with 4 convenient sections on each map showing the river and the countryside on each side of the river. The base mapping uses O.S. geodata which has been edited and enhanced to show essential information as clearly as possible. The maps show roads, towns, villages, footpaths, rivers, streams, lakes, churches, farms, houses, woods and hills. Physical relief is shown with a contour interval of 10m.
Canoeing information is highlighted with colour boxes and symbols to show recommended launch sites, rapids, campsites, pubs, cafes and canoe hire bases. There are brief guidance notes on paddling the river Wye and essential information for key sections. There are also up to date notes on other information sources – websites, books, etc. It should be invaluable for anyone planning a single or multi-day trip. Printed on polyart waterproof paper.
