Canoe and Kayak map of britainI've got one of these on my wall and think this is a great idea.
 
This is a high quality map of mainland Britain that shows the huge extent of canoeing possibilities on rivers, lakes, canals and coast.  It is colour coded to clearly show the nature of these waterways.  Southern England and Wales appears on one side of the B1 sheet – Scotland and the North of England appears on the reverse.
 
The base map is very detailed and shows roads, towns, villages, rivers, streams, lakes and canals with this detail in pastel colours. Over this is superimposed the canoeing information in bright colours so that this stands out
- Tidal rivers and different Grades of river – Flat, classes: 1, 2, 3, 4.
- Navigations (e.g. canals) used by motorized craft.
- Especially popular canoeing trips are highlighted in yellow,
- Selected coastal paddles are marked, as are artificial white water courses.  
 
This map projects the ‘Big Picture’ and is very much a product that inspires, excites and gets people planning and dreaming of their next canoe trip.  Some paddlers will buy this map for the office wall whilst for the newcomer to the sport it answers the question “where can I go paddling next?  Information panels give helpful information on access, recommended websites and guidebooks – designed to ‘open the doors’ to the world of canoeing and kayaking.
