Book Description

21 May 2012
This is a high quality map of mainland Britain which shows the huge extent of canoeing possibilities on rivers, lakes, canals and coast. It is colour-coded to show clearly the nature of these waterways. Southern England and Wales appear on one side of the B1 sheet with Scotland and the North of England 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. Paddling information includes: 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; and selected coastal paddles are marked, as are artificial white water courses. This is a new map for the 21st Century - created for the two million canoeists in Britain - to inspire, excite, dream and plan that next journey. 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.

More About the Author

Peter Knowles was on one of the early Grand Canyon Kayaking Trips in 1973 and was run over by a 10m motorised raft on one of the large rapids. This near drowning didn't put him off and it started a love of big white water and a lifetime paddling major rivers around the world.

He first travelled to Nepal and the Himalayas in 1983 and then fell in love with the country. Since then he has paddled and explored almost all the major rivers of the Himalayas - from the Afghan border to the mighty Brahmaputra and probably more than anyone else alive today. He has led over 40 trips and expeditions and made many first descents in Nepal, Pakistan, India, Tibet and Bhutan.

He has appeared numerous times in films and television and is a Life Fellow of Britain's Royal Geog-raphical Society.

He wrote the first edition of White Water Nepal in 1991 and then founded Rivers Publishing. He now tries to stay warm and dry sitting in front of a computer, writing about rivers - but friends keep dragging him off to some exotic river to get cold, wet and scared yet again!

This is a good map, but I would have expected more spots around the highlands (were I live), but a good map for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition for a canoeists library 1 Jun 2012
Format:Map
Having used the excellent French rivers map for many, a UK version was long overdue. The map like the french one clearly identifies canoeable rivers with their grading. This map deserves to become an essential part of a canoeists library.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational map but lacking in detail 16 Sep 2013
Format:Map|Verified Purchase
It's useful to get an initial idea where to head. Could do with more sea Kayak routes. A bit pricey for what it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great new resource for paddlers 9 Jun 2012
Format:Map
I've recently received a copy of the Canoe & Kayak Map of Great Britain.

I was a little unsure how easy it would be to use the map, as there is simply so much information to try to get across. However, my fears were totally unfounded, as the Map is extremely clear and simple to use.

Each river or waterway is "graded" by use of a simple colour system, so you can instantly see what sort of paddling to expect when you go there. The joy of this is that by not trying to offer up too much detail, you get an overview of the whole country and its amazing how many rivers there are out there for paddlers. We all know of the most famous rivers, but this map also highlights many lesser known destinations at a glance. Yes, you then have to go elsewhere to find out details for each river, but this map gives you the inspiration to plan many a trip for years to come.

There is plenty of other information, be it where to buy or hire equipment, who to use for a guided trip, and plenty of tips and recommendations.

I can see the map remaining very close to hand when I'm thinking up new trips. Yet another "must have" publication from Pete Knowles.
