We have four historical maps available.
The first shows (more or less) the route actually used. It is dated 1769, some two years before building actually commenced. It's a big download (3.4MB and approximately 4000x2000 pixels) but if you're on a relatively quick connection, click here, it's an interesting view. For further information, click here.
The third map shows another rejected route. This was the original route idea, going to Bawtry where the canal would have run into the River Idle and thence to the Trent. For the full sized (1.5MB) version, click here. For further information click here.

For a cruising guide with every lock, bridge etc. marked, try Canal Plan AC, click here to find it.
Should you wish to buy a physical map, easily your best bet is to get the Richlow Guide. Purchase it online by clicking here.
If you're trying to get an idea of where places are along the line of the canal in the present day with some idea of the progress of the restoration, hopefully this map will help you out. Use the scroll bars to move around the map.
