Two maps cover all 161 km of the most popular canoeing stretch of the river from Glasbury to Chepstow. This is a “Strip map” – with 4 convenient sections on each map showing the river and the countryside on each side of the river. The base map uses O.S. geodata which has been edited and enhanced to show essential information as clearly as possible. The map shows 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 rapids like Symonds Yat. 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.
The maps are in the shops next week and are available online - we recommend www.wordery.com as an ethical, convenient and good value alternative to Amazon.
Please see www.riverspublishing.co.uk for more details.
If anyone is clever enough then perhaps you could post the front and back covers and snapshot up here please.

It would be good to get an example of what the mapping looks like too, Pete.
