  1. Hello Paul,
    For a weekly feature on the Melton Borough Villages on, a remake of a 1967 picture where Lock 7 if Oakham Canal was in Wyfordby, is the start of my story on the village. I would like to use a detail (small extract) of the Waterway Routes map of the canal, of course with a credit to your website. Is that possible?

    • Paul says:

      Yes, you may use a small extract of my Oakham Canal map as requested. You may also use small extracts of any of my free maps (such as the Grantham Canal) on your website,

    I’m a member of the Melton & Oakham Waterways Society, was wandering if I can use these maps of our face book page.
