These are my free maps covering the Cotswold Canals.
Download these free maps (from the links at the end) to see how good my maps are, and to check you can install them on your device(s).
All the maps in my range are produced in this clear style showing the information you need for cruising, and helping with walking or cycling too.
They are all available to download in a choice of Acrobat (pdf) and Memory‑Map (qct) formats.

My free Cotswold Canals maps cover the route shown in orange including:-

The Cotswold Canals Maps are available in a choice of two formats:-
The Acrobat (pdf) map includes 13 pages of maps plus 5 cover pages. These can be viewed on screen a page at a time.
The pages are sized for printing A4, or A5 if your eyesight is good enough.
This map can be used on computers, laptops, phones and tablets with Acrobat Reader (or equivalent) software or app installed.
The Memory-Map (qct) map has the same map pages joined into one scrollable and zoomable map.
This map works on Android, iPhone/iPad, Windows and Mac with Memory‑Map (or equivalent) software or app installed, and the classic map compatibility option enabled.
