We are very grateful to John Marsden who has shown us a copy of another old map of the canal. We have a rather poor copy that has been crudely coloured, but this is far clearer.
This is the sixth map recorded on our website. To see the others, click here.
The route is more or less that actually taken, but this map differs from the others in that it shows Blythe. It has some delightful details.
If you click on John Grundy map 1770, you can download it as a PDF. You can expand this to 300% to see parts really clearly.
