Avon Navigation Trust

The Avon Navigation Trust (ANT), the charity responsible for navigation on the River Avon, has worked with Waterway Routes to make these maps free to download.   The normal charge for downloading the maps would be £4.00 for the Acrobat (pdf) version and £6.40 for the Memory-Map (qct) version.  The ANT are kindly covering these charges so we can make the maps free to download. They will be free to download until at least 31st March 2023.  If the arrangements are successful then we are likely to continue the arrangements, otherwise they will revert to the normal prices after that.

These maps work on Windows, Android, iPhone/iPad and Mac devices providing they have the appropriate App/Software installed.

The licence conditions permit you to use the map on up to five devices (computers, laptops, phones, tablets etc) for personal use. Business licences are available on request.

Shortly after making payment you will receive the download link on screen and by email.  Please check your junk mail folders if the email doesn’t appear promptly as your spam filter may have mistaken the download link for spam.

Each map covers the route shown in orange, including:-

  • River Avon (Stratford)

Acrobat (pdf)

Example pages from my range of maps.

You must have Acrobat Reader (or equivalent) App/Software installed to use my maps in Acrobat (pdf) Format.

Acrobat (pdf) Format maps are split into A4 pages.  They can viewed a page at a time on screen, or printed on your own printer.  They are designed to be printed A4 size and, if your eyesight is good enough, they can be printed A5.  They can be printed A3 if you need a larger print size.

You can read more about using my maps in Acrobat (pdf) Format.

Memory-Map (qct)

Examples from my range of maps.

You must have the Memory-Map App/Software installed to use my maps in Memory-Map (qct) Format.  That App/Software must have the Classic Map Compatibility licence enabled and you will have to pay Memory-Map (the company) for that.

Please use the free examples to check Memory-Map’s pricing (after using their initial free trial period) and ensure you can conquer Memory-Map’s tricky installation process (which is especially difficult on Apple products) before ordering.

The maps will track in real time on GPS enabled devices so you know exactly where you are.  You can save tracks, routes and waypoints with the Memory-Map software.

You can scroll around the whole map and zoom in and out as required.

Map Support

You can download the key separately if required.  It is included as the last page on every Acrobat (pdf) map and shown at intervals on the Memory-Map (qct) Maps.

You can read more about using my maps on each type of device.  These pages are intended to provide general information only and may not be up to date for the latest versions of the App/Software.  You will need to follow the instructions from the supplier of the App/Software you are using and seek help from them if you are having problems with their App/Software.

Please note that I only supply the map and I will offer help in the unlikely event of any problems with my map.  If you are having problems using an App/Software then you must seek help from the supplier of that App/Software.  Please use my free maps to check you can conquer the download and installation process (which is particularly tricky on Apple devices) before purchasing any of my maps.

  1. Seb Hanney

    Map’s brilliant for finding Decent mooring! shame Pubs are not listed though :P, Also would be nice if it came as separate PDF’s so could just open the navigation needed at the time as the single PDF is pretty large to open and navigate on older laptops/phones, however easy enough to split them after. Thanks! 😀

      If only there was a reliable source of information about pubs that are open ….. I used to show pubs but there was no way to keep the information up to date and it was the only thing that generated complaints so I’ve had to remove pubs until I can find a reliable source of information.

      Looking at my records it looks like your order is more than a year ago. Don’t forget you can update to the latest monthly edition at a discounted price – just email me if you are interested.

      I note you seem you have the Memory-Map (qct) version of the map so there’s no need to split the map into sections with that – you can just scroll around and zoom in to the bit you need.

    Having had a first foray on the Avon was interested to get more info. Downloaded map looks great – keen to explore further.

    Great maps, love the detail and realistic journey times.
    Slight caution required with the new Shakespeare Marina – it’s not open for services yet – best check beforehand!

  7. Carol (verified owner)

    Really sorry but wasn’t able to access the download; I’m sure it would’ve been a useful addition to my trusty Nicholson’s Guide which actually did a great job even if it’s not quite up to date.

    • Paul (verified owner)

      I’m sorry you weren’t able to access the download.

      All you had to do was click on the links on screen to download but no clicks were recorded so you didn’t do that.

      You didn’t receive the email with the download links because you made a typo in your email address.

      You didn’t contact me at the time so we could fix the problem – or simply try again which you could have done as the maps is free to there’s no risk of being double charged.
